If you were given one year and an unlimited budget to squeeze in as many great events in as many countries around the world, where would be the places to be? I personally would like to go to Carnival and Oktoberfest. Mardi Gras is way way way too packed. However, it would be cool to have the dough to get one of them balconies on Bourbon Street and just throw beads to flashing chicks.
Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival celebrating beer 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 6 million people from around the world attending the event 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. Other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations, modeled after the original Munich event.
