Working For The Weekend: Harvest & Oktoberfests

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The work week is winding down, which means WCCO is Workin’ for the Weekend.

Here are five ways to celebrate the fall season.

Harvest Fest

Celebrate all things fall in beautiful Stillwater this weekend!

Harvest Fest features a chili cook-off, giant pumpkin weigh-off, live music, kids costume parade and more.

The festivities take place Saturday and Sunday on Water Street in downtown Stillwater.

Wildlife Refuge Turns 40

One of the Twin Cities best kept secrets is turning 40!

The Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge is hosting public celebration featuring family-friendly hands-on activities.

Nature lovers can celebrate this urban oasis on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Twin Cities Oktoberfest

Throw on your lederhosen and head to the Minnesota State Fairgrounds for Twin Cities Oktoberfest!

Celebrate German heritage with food, Summit beer, music and, of course, Hammerschlagen.

Join your fellow Germans and at heart Germans for Oktoberfest this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Underwater Pumpkin Carving

Two things that typically don’t go together: pumpkins and scuba gear.

On Sunday, Scuba Crew 820 is hosting its 5th annual underwater pumpkin carving event on a dive platform at the bottom of Stillwater’s Square Lake – 21 feet below the surface!

For this event, you must bring your own pumpkin, and also be a certified open water diver.

Vendemmia 2016

Jason is hosting the sommelier wine stomp competition at Vendemmia at the parking lot of Broders’ Pasta Bar.

It’s Sunday, and there’s a free stomp at 1 p.m.
