    We have a HUGEOktoberfest celebration where i live in Kitchener, Ontario. I actually supply the Oktoberfest at the Concordia club with a bunch of stuff every year. Its a really fun time..good beer, great food, fun times.

    some people think the music and stuff is cheesy...but trust me if you haven't experienced it..you have no idea how much of a blast it actually is.

    We have a local oktoberfest every year here in Delaware. Not exactly the same but we do get some great beers most have probably never had before. Food + beer + music = always a good time.

    Actual Oktoberfest used to be just one big festival in Munich but now it's basically the entire country just celebrates for a few weeks. All bars/cafe's have specials like 2 beers and some sausage stuff for 5 bucks...etc and they supply "oktoberfest beer" everywhere. It runs from the middle of September to the first weekend of October. I was in Germany 3 years ago from mid September to mid October and literally everywhere I went there was Oktoberfest signs. One place even had 72 ounce cups of beer for a just a few Euros. Great times

            Many of our towns and cities were settled by German Immigrants, we are the melting pot of the world. My great grandparents were german and many Americans have German Heritage.

    Hmm, Horrorman, is there a lot of arrests and fights in Oktoberfest? It just seems like something which would attract that sort of behaviour, especially with drunk people.
