Bethlehem,Pa has a lot of Germans. The Oktoberfest is held at the old steel mill which has been converted to a very cool entertainment center. We just had a 10 day Musikfest that had 1 million people visit our Christmas City. About 50 stages, all types of music and OK to carry beer around. Never had an issue smoking at it.
