Follow the Lederhosen

Congratulations, Cincinnati; you’re home to the country’s largest Oktoberfest celebration. Too bad it also topped VH1’s list of the 40 least metal moments when Mötley Crüe’s Vince Neil grand-marshaled the “Chicken Dance” in 2004. Well, you can bet your bratwurst there’ll be nothing like that at this year’s Rocktoberfest at Fort Lauderdale’s Riverwalk. As you make your way around Esplanade Park, sampling food and drinks from various venders, the lineup of local bands will keep the hokey stuff at bay. To wit: the Freakin Hott, Fourth Dimension, Audio Heist, Ghosts of Gloria, Recover South, and Big Bang Radio. With a little luck (and booze), maybe you can avoid having the “Chicken Dance” stuck in your head all week.

Rocktoberfest returns Friday from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. at Esplanade Park (400 SW Second St.). The cost is $20 and $25 for general admission, $40 for VIP tickets. Call 954-739-5006, or visit
Fri., Oct. 15, 5:30 p.m., 2010
