On September 18th, with the tapping of the first keg by Munich Mayor Christian Ude and a cry of “O’zapft is!”, Oktoberfest 2010 officially started in Munich, Germany. While this year marks the 177th Oktoberfest to be held, 2010 is the 200th anniversary of the very first Oktoberfest in 1810 (some years were missed due to war or cholera outbreaks). The Oktoberfest tradition started in 1810 to celebrate the October 12th marriage of Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. The citizens of Munich were invited to join in the festivities which were held over five days on the fields in front of the city gates. This year, festivities will run until October 4, 2010.
We’ve collected a few images from the opening weekend of Oktoberfest 2010 and made a PowerPoint presenataion and a video slideshow. It is really a good chance to learn more about this traditional German festival, just enjoy!
