All the best Oktoberfest celebrations this fall in Philly and nearby

This weekend there are three Oktoberfest celebrations: Bloktoberfest on Washington Avenue, Uptoberfest at Uptown Beer Garden and Ardmore Oktoberfest.

They all include beer and they all sound fun, which makes choosing which one to attend this Saturday extra difficult.
