Oktoberfest. For most of us, we raise our beers and salute the cooler season, but for Bavarians, it's an enormous celebration.
The Bavarian folk festival of Oktoberfest lasts 16 to 18 days. Over 16 million people attend during that time. Music, dancing, traditional foods and more beer than can be imagined are consumed.
It began at the fairgrounds long ago, but over time it involved things like bowling, horse races, and all manner of games and fun.
