Octoberfest-style activities continued until 4pm, with brats (not so much – see Comments below), a beer garden, German oompah band, and Burien’s own Yodeling MC Manuela Horn, booths and of course the Chicken Dance. Local restaurants and shops were also open for business with drink and event specials.
The Burien Brat Trot was developed in 2009 as a way to gather the community together, Octoberfest style, for an afternoon of exercise followed by a celebration. In the spirit of community the Brat Trot also raises critical funds for two local non-profits Safe Kids King County South and WestSide Baby. Both organizations support injury prevention through education and access by providing needy families with essentials such as car seats and cribs.
