Although the Munich Oktoberfest did not escape my youthful grasp in the 80’s, my spouse and I are first-time Oktoberfest hopefuls this year in the K-W area. Since the turn of the new millennium, we have settled into a preference to avoid bar fights and beer vomit, and would appreciate any help in wading through the myriad of venues and events this festival has to offer. We are really looking forward to enjoying decent food, spirited live German music and an atmosphere reminiscent of Bavarian culture in Canada.
Can anyone please pass on your recommendations and experiences? I am attaching a link to of ticketed events for 2013 and a link to the Oktoberfest home page to help jog your collective memories. Thank you for your help. Ein Prosit!
