The World's Largest Oktoberfest is Happening Now

The world’s oldest, and biggest Oktoberfest began this past weekend in Munich, Germany. The beer-soaked celebration actually began as a wedding celebration in 1810. This year’s festival, the 183rd, will last until October 3 this year. More than six million people stop by the party, which is full of traditional Bavarian costumes, parades, carnival rides, and liters of beer. There are so many drinkers, that you actually have to make a reservation for one of the large beer tents unless you’re willing to show up early in the morning to claim a spot. Don’t fret if you can’t make it to Munich over the next couple of weeks. Sit back with a Hofbrau and enjoy the gallery.
