Smacktoberfest Tix On Sale
What happens when you combine Smackfest with a beer and wine festival and some German oompha atmosphere? You get Smacktoberfest! It’s Oct. 9 in Seaside Lagoon.
In a continuation of an event started in 2019 (but not held last year), this is a costumed beach volleyball tournament along with a drinking festival. Not that the regular Smackfest isn’t one of those already, but this makes it official.
For volleyballers, there is the fun division for intermediate-level players, while the Competitive is for more advanced teams. And of course there will be the usual “Smackfest rules.” Costumes are definitely encouraged for teams.
The doors open at 11 a.m and the event ends at 5:30. Volleyball play beginning at 1:30, the playoffs begin at 3 and the finals are at 4:30. Participation is limited to 21-and-over only. The cost is $50, $200 to field a coed 4’s team.

Amtrak Shut Down Between LA And San Diego
