Oktoberfest is a huge Bavarian tradition and when I think of Oktoberfest I think of bratwurst, sauerkraut and beer thanks to memories of my youth.

One of the most significant features of an Oktoberfest is the celebration and rightfully so. The Oktoberfest was originally the celebration of Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese on 12 October 1810. Citizens of Munich were invited to join the festival in the fields to celebrate this happy moment.

A horse race symbolising the close of the event was held in front of the Royal Family and this gave birth to the celebration that followed called Oktoberfest. This year will be the 183rd Oktoberfest since 1810!

The Oktoberfest is one of the largest Bavarian festivals in the world, with many countries participating in the joyous occasion. Australia celebrates it with one major event called the Oktoberfest in the Gardens which takes place throughout October starting in Perth on 08 October 2016.

One can experience beer halls, German food stalls, performers, and many other activities keeping one busy from 2 pm to 10 pm! Last year, Oktoberfest was sold out, which means that it will probably do the same this year.
