Beer Stein Race
A favorite attraction, deeply rooted in German tradition:
Contestants race a short distance with two fists full of filled beer
steins. One contestant per lane lines up with both feet behind the
white line. When the announcer rings the bell, they run to their
assigned six steins, pick them up and run back to the white line. The
objective is to do this as fast as possible with as little liquid lost
as possible. For each centimeter of liquid lost from the steins, one
second is added to the contestant's time. If the contestant lost a
centimeter from each stein, six seconds are added to their time. Judges

The two contestants with the fastest race times will compete in the final race to be the grand champion!
Players form a line from shortest to tallest in height. At their
turn, players are blindfolded, spun around a few times, handed the
pinata buster stick and encouraged to hit the pinata. The pinata will be
swung up and down, and other players and spectators are encouraged to
misdirect the hitter. Each player is allowed to hit the pinata at least
a few times before moving on to the next player. After the pinata is
broken and the hitter has put down the pinata buster stick, the other
players can rush in and grab all the goodies they can.
SAFETY NOTE: All other players should keep a safe distance from the
hitter. After the pinata is broken and before the looting begins,
hitting must have stopped and the stick put down by the hitter.
Barrel Roll Race
At the sound of the bell, contestants roll the barrels from the start
line past the midway line, spin them 180 degrees then roll the barrels
back past the finish line as fast as possible. But beware! Points are
deducted for losing control of the barrel and mowing down spectators. No
part of the barrel can cross the line before the ringing of the bell or
during its spinning at the midway line. The barrel must be rolled.
Carrying will result in disqualification.
The two contestants with the fastest race times will complete in the final championship race to be named the grand champion.
