Ipswich's Christchurch Park is set for a German makeover later this year for a full-on Oktoberfest celebration.
A section of the park will be transformed into a Bavarian beer garden for one day only, as part of the now global festivities.
It will offer a taste of authentic Bavarian culture with traditional food, live entertainment and Oktoberfest beer.
Gates to the beer garden will open from 1pm on Saturday, October 16, with the party set to continue until 10pm.
Two waves of ticket sales have already passed, with only around 10% of tickets remaining on sale.

Those wanting the chance to don lederhosen or a dirndl still have a chance to buy tickets online.
The world's largest "Volksfest", the folk festival is celebrated every year, having first been held in 1810 to mark the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen.
Tickets can be purchased here.
