HAWLEY, PA--(Marketwired - October 12, 2016) - This November at Woodloch Pines, an award-winning, all-inclusive family resort located in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains, guests will be in for a pre-holiday treat. Set to debut right before the start of Woodloch's exciting Thanksgiving and Christmas festivities, the resort will host its first-ever NovemberFest Weekend.
Based on the traditional Oktoberfest, a German folk festival that occurs annually in Bavaria, Germany, Woodloch Resort hosted "Wood-Loch-Toberfest" this past summer. Following the success of the event, which featured live music, German food, special local draft beers, crafts, games, and dancing, NovemberFest will expand to become a full weekend event during the already popular fall season.
Guests can look forward to partaking in the following activities during their stay:
- A German Buffet featuring an accordion player
- Live Music from The Oompah Boys, a German band specializing in popular rock and pop songs
- Bavarian Bar Games for adults
- Carnival games and a balloon artist for children
- German Themed Baking Wars -- a team versus team event that has "bakeries" competing in both resource management and creativity all under time constraints
- Local craft beer supplied by The Irving Cliff Brewery, located just 15 miles from Woodloch
Guests can also still enjoy some of Woodloch's most popular outdoor activities, such as the go karts, zipline, climbing wall, and archery, in the cooler autumn temperatures. As an added bonus, NovemberFest weekend features some of the Pocono resort's lowest prices of the season with rates starting at $149 per adult, per night.
Woodloch's creative brand of fun extends into the following week. During its "Thanksgiving Sampler" package from November 21st to 23rd, the family resort will feature a brand-new activity that highlights the true meaning of the holiday season -- giving back. The aptly named "CANstruction Contest" will offer guests the opportunity to design and build various elaborate structures using canned and boxed foods, which will then be donated to local food banks.
"Our guests are always expecting something new, different and exciting, and we want to deliver on that expectation," said Joey Ranner, Woodloch's Activities Director. "Fall is the perfect time to celebrate and be thankful while enjoying some great seasonal food, drinks, and entertainment. That will all be here for the taking in November!"
