Ahh, Oktoberfest.  One great reason to be jealous of the Germans.  Every year, for a two-week stretch between late September and October, the center of Munich, or Theresienwiese, turns into beer town.  14 tents throughout the town will host beer-centric happenings throughout Oktoberfest.  This fest is the largest of its kind in the world and attracts and an average of 5 million visitors of a year.

Oktoberfest 2019 kicks off on Saturday, September 21st and lasts until Monday, October 5th.  Of course, Munich isn't the only place where Oktoberfest is commemorated in the world.

We've got a few cool Oktoberfest happenings around the 813area.  Here are a few...
