NEW ORLEANS -- The chicken dance is headed to Bayou St. John, along with the beer steins, the bratz and the oompah bands.

According to our partners at The New Orleans Advocate, Deutsches Haus' Oktoberfest is returning to New Orleans for the first time in seven years. The event will take place on the lot where Deutsches Haus plans to build its new clubhouse at 1700 Moss St., just across from City Park.

The fall festival will take place for three consecutive weekends, Oct. 6, Oct. 14, and Oct. 20.
