    Tickets are still available for the rousing early-fall extravaganza.

    CHICKEN DANCE AT THE HEIGHT OF SUMMER? Of course you can. Who would dare stop you engaging in such a delightful performance? Likewise, you're free to hold as many full steins as you like, practicing your skills there, and as for shaking it to oompah music while wearing your lucky lederhosen?

Oktoberfests'll certainly start filling the schedule, up and down the Golden State, in the weeks ahead, but the Sierra Nevada celebration? It's as big as a big stein and as rollicking as a Chicken Dance professional who has practiced all year long.
