First Friday events regularly feature live entertainment, such as this horn-playing ensemble in front of Le Boulanger on Main Street.

Los Altos Forward has scheduled a First Friday Oktoberfest event 6-10 p.m. Friday in downtown Los Altos.

A Bier and Weingarten is slated 7:30-10 p.m. on the outdoor patio behind the Costume Bank, 169 State St. Bavarian music will play, and beverages and refreshments will be served.

Shops and galleries will remain open until 8 p.m., many offering discounts and free refreshments.

A Pumpkin Hunt game is slated 6-8 p.m. A “Candidates’ Corner,” where residents can meet and talk with Los Altos City Council and Los Altos School District candidates, will be open 6-7:30 p.m. on the patio behind the Costume Bank.

Entertainment will include live music along State and Main streets.

Attendees can enter a drawing for gift certificates donated by local stores and restaurants. To accumulate tickets, participate in the Pumpkin Hunt game or purchase merchandise during First Friday.

To pick up programs and register for the drawing, visit the First Friday headquarters on the patio behind the Costume Bank.
