On October 27th I went to Oktoberfest with a number of friends. We went to celebrate the passing of midterms and decided to take the evening off to enjoy the festivities. The food at Oktoberfest consisted typical fair foods and various meats. My friends and I noticed that a lot of beer was served at the stands and quickly realized that the fest has German origins. In fact Oktoberfest originated from Munich, Germany and occurred each year around the month of October. The festival originated through the marriage of King Ludwig I in 1810. Overall, the festival was extremely fun and I’m glad I went. I got to learn about the origins of Oktoberfest in the process.
