“The beer, the pretzels, the German food. It’s just a great family-friendly event,” said Panama City Beach Oktoberfest Marketing Director Grant Wittstruck. “Community, I mean, we haven’t talked about community at all, but everyone comes out here, you see friends that you haven’t seen for years. So it’s just a great event all the way around.”
