You can't live in Southern Ontario and not know about the Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest, the largest Oktoberfest outside of Germany! Its pretty much a 10 day party with festhalls located throughout the city where you can drink lots of beer and polka to your hearts content. And did I mention the men dress in traditional German Lederhosen or Bundhosen?
Several years ago, when Steve was attending U of W we went to Oktoberfest a few times, never realizing that down the road we'd be living here and Steve would be coordinating a festhall! Its called Altes Munchen Haus and is put on by the Lions Club of Kitchener with all proceeds being directed back into the community. Luckily, Altes Munchen Haus is also home to Walter Ostenek, Canada's Polka King!
This year one of the featured performers was David Wilcox. So, Steve got us tickets and I went with a few friends. Three of these friends had never been to Oktoberfest before! I think you can tell from the pics below that we all had a good time!
