Oktoberfest Amped is taking over the Las Colonias Amphitheater this Saturday and here are some essentials you're going to need before you go.

1. Sunblock

Even though winter is rearing its ugly head this week, it won't last long. In fact, Saturday's forecast calls for sunshine and a high of 63 degrees. Plus, the event is from 2 pm to 6 pm, so there will be plenty of rays to soak up.

2. Your ID

Because the beer is going to be flowing en masse, Oktoberfest Amped is a 21 and up event. Trust me, you don't want to be that one person that gets turned away because you left your ID at home.

3. Comfortable Shoes

Oktoberfest Amped is taking up the entire Las Colonias Amphitheater, and if you're familiar with the venue, you know how big it is. There will be live music on the stage, cornhole on the grass, and beer vendors all along the outer sidewalk, so you're going to be doing some walking, and probably don't want to be doing it in heels.

4. An Appetite

In addition to German beer and German music, there will be no shortage of German food at Oktoberfest Amped. Plus, it's important to have plenty of food while consuming alcohol.

5. A Designated Driver

This is probably the most important thing. If you're going to be drinking, certainly make a point not to drive. If you don't have a designated driver available, rideshare services are a good option, or of course the good old fashioned taxicab.

Oktoberfest Amped takes place this Saturday, October 12th at the Las Colonias Amphitheater from 2 to 6 pm.
