“Ales N’ Tails Oktoberfest is an opportunity for a new audience to discover and experience Turtle Back Zoo while supporting the Essex County Parks Foundation, which has been an integral partner with our Parks Department,” said DiVincenzo. “The Foundation has helped us obtain grants to build new playgrounds, introduce educational programming at our Environmental Center and promote activities throughout our Parks System.”
Seasonal brews from around the corner and from around the world will be available for tasting at stations throughout the zoo. A variety of food vendors will be on site as well. Entertainment will be provided by the Oompah Band, which performs German and Bavarian music.
