Oktoberfest 2010

Oktoberfest 2010.  September 18 through October 4, 2010.  A celebration held in Munich every year, commemorating the 1810 marriage of Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen and Prince Ludwig of Bavaria.  This year is special, as it marks the 200th year of celebration in the Theresienwiese (grasslands or meadow of Therese) in the heart of Munich. 

Beer, music, horse racing, dancing, bratwurst, German mustard, wiener schnitzel, sauerkraut, spitfire roasted chicken, Spätzle, German potato salad, potato dumplings, red cabbage, black forest cake, linzer torte, soft pretzels, rye and dark bread.  Yikes!  So much to do, eat, and drink, so little time.  So don your lederhosen or dirndl dresses, and get going!
