Scheduling the Tennessee History Festival on Bicentennial Mall for the same day as Germantown's Oktoberfest: do they conflict or compliment? Do they mutually draw or drain?

Will young men carrying the ubiquitous Paulaner steins harass the guy playing Hernando De Soto? Will there be any parking to be had anywhere between Downtown and MetroCenter?
