1. Street Food Rumble

More than 40 food trucks will roll in and throw down at the Street Food Rumble from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday in the west parking lot of the Seminole Casino in Coconut Creek. Read all about the Street Food Rumble and decide who you'll be hitting up (and rooting for) on Saturday.

2. Las Olas Oktoberfest

Exploring cultural attractions in town this weekend needn't preclude drinking brews with busty ladies. The first-ever Las Olas Oktoberfest is as good an excuse as any to imbibe German beers and platters of salty meats while admiring the wonders of lederhosen and dirndls. The three-day festival is 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and noon to 10 p.m. Sunday. There's no cost to attend, but you'll of course have to pay for beer and food. Find more details about Las Olas Oktoberfest here. The event is hosted at the Riverside Hotel in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
