A September Oktoberfest at the Cottagewood General Store

Octoberfest in September

Well, the sign tells the story. Bring all your little umlauts.

Stolen info on Oktoberfest:
"The Oktoberfest tradition started in 1810 to celebrate the October 12th marriage of Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig to the Saxon-Hildburghausen Princess Therese. The citizens of Munich were invited to join in the festivities which were held over five days on the fields in front of the city gates. The main event of the original Oktoberfest was a horse race." - Vistawide International website

AND: Today this Munich Uber-Fest lasts 16 days and begins in September, ending the first Sunday in Oktober.
