It’s Oktoberfest Season

Is it fall yet? October is rounding the corner, which means the season of Oktoberfest is among us. Many years ago, in the year of 1810, Crown Prince Louis, who would become King Louis I of Bavaria, invited the citizens of Munich, Germany to his marriage celebration in front of the city gates, including a horse race, a feast and the origins of Oktoberfest.
