Oktoberfest 2012 celebrations in South Florida

It’s that time of year when slugging obscene amounts of beer, dancing and singing badly in public is perfectly acceptable and outrageously amusing to say the least, hence, Zigge Zagge Hoi Hoi Hoi. The largest and most renowned Oktoberfest celebration in South Florida is the 39th Annual Oktoberfest in Lake Worth; this well oiled machine has its plans well under way for its annual festivities. There are a few repeat events and some newcomers to the Oktoberfest scene in South Florida, all putting their unique spin on the original Oktoberfest held in Munich Germany.

“Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, running from late September to the first weekend in October. It is one of the most famous events in Germany and is the world’s largest fair, with more than 5 million people attending every year. To the locals, it is not called Oktoberfest, but “die Wiesn” – after the colloquial name of the fairgrounds themselves. The Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture, having been held since 1810″ via Wikipedia
