Oktoberfest 2014 is Coming Soon in Munich

Are you ready to party with me? lolz! The waiting is almost over! Oktoberfest in Munich is  coming so soon! The most famous and largest festival in the planet will  start in  less than 24 hours.  Isn’t it cool  to celebrate and have fun in this festival?  I know many of you will be excited to experience a  truly Bavarian culture.  Millions of locals,  guests and tourists   will surely be there again.

This year’s celebration will take place from September 20 to October 5, 2014 at the area called as Theresiewiese, locally called as the Wiesn. The Munich Oktoberfest originally took place during the 16 days up to, and including, the first Sunday in October.

The Bavarian  Wheel at the Oktoberfest during one of my visits.  This is one  of my favorite rides especially in Volksfest or People’s fair or festivals in Germany.  I visited Oktoberfest for the fourth time already and still want to back again this year.

There are just so many things I love in this festival. Among the few ones are the local and international delicacies, the rides, watching people around, tasting local beers, the live bands inside the beer tents and more. Taking about the live bands during this festivals, I am thinking if they all got their musical instruments in this site, www.musiciansfriend.com. Any idea out there? Anyway, I begun to love listening to Bavarian  folks music as well.
