A Look Back . . .

Part IV: Oktoberfest

A five-part series revisiting five 2007 Cincinnati Festivals: MidPoint Music Festival, Fringe Festival, Taste of Cincinnati, Oktoberfest, and Riverfest.

This past September 22nd and 23rd, Cincinnati hosted the 32nd annual Oktoberfest Zinzinnati. A program of Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, for two days visitors enjoyed a little bit of German music, food, and of course beer. Ok, so maybe it wasn't totally German. But I honestly thought it was more German this year than in years past. There were the traditional dancers and musicians but also Alpenhorns and a German import food tent giving away samples. And this year the late Joe Nuxhall lead the Chicken Dance. Festivities were even kicked off during the week prior with the Gemuetlichkeit Games on Fountain Square.

There isn't much to say other than I had a great time each day. And there is something about men in lederhosen and alpine hats that is just fantastic. Prost!
