We are taking our 9 and 12 year old kids to Breckenridge for a fall getaway in September, staying at Mountain Thunder Lodge. We love Breckenridge and were planning on hiking and hanging out.
However, I just discovered that it is the weekend of Octoberfest. How crowded and hectic is it? It sounds like fun and a great festival but will the atmosphere be O.K. for the kids? Traffic? This is the only weekend we can go due to sports schedules. I searched the forums but didn't find recent info. I'd appreciate any input--thanks so much.
