    Oktoberfest with Flex Tools in Germany!

    Oktoberfest with Flex Tools in Germany!

    Here's a few pictures I took to try to capture what Oktoberfest was like from our tent. Note that while the word tent might conjure up ideas of a physical tent like used at Carnivals and Fairs, these were actually wooden structures with picnic style seating and LOTS of people!

    The menu




    Obviously this picture was taken with my iPhone but after this picture most the pictures you'll see in this thread were taken with my trusty, dusty Canon Rebel until the battery went dead...

    The waiters kept the tables filled with mugs of beer at all times... even if you still had a beer, more beer was brought...



    It's still early as you can see it's still daylight as you look out into the crowds outside the tent. Note how most people are still station on the benches... the later it gets... the more people start standing on the seats and swaying...



    We had two tables to ourselves, these must be reserved ahead of time. Suby and Bob going over the menu Nick wants Chicken!



    Here's the folks from Flex at our other table... not Jill is way in the back with our friends from Poland. Monica is sitting just up from her a few spaces...



    Very crowded... lots of people, lots of beer...






    Hey what do you know... they brought more beer?









    Cheers!



    Suby ordered some type of Pork



    Nick ordered CHICKEN!




    People are starting to stand on the benches...




    Bob bought some of these Chickens... I'm not sure the meaning but here you go...

    And the food arrives!





    People starting to move up...



    Rock-n-Roll music, lots of people and beer!



    Many of the girls and ladies wear the traditional attire to the event...



    Our team getting up on the benches... you actually get a better view...






    I forget this guys name, he was with the group from Poland, he had a lot of energy!



    German girls singing...



    People everywhere having fun and watching the band play...



    Nick holding down the fort...



    When in Rome, err Germany...



    Very friendly and spirited...



    Party time!



    I've moved back to our group and standing with Jill...

    Isn't that beer just great? No headaches next day. Not brewed like our beer (quick).

    The pictures don't do it justice. It was a great time and if you remotely like the taste of beer one bit, this is an event everyone should attend at least once in their lifetime.

    Reminds me of the restaurants in Frankenmuth, MI.... just confirms how well they've recreated the German atmosphere up there.

    Oh yeah... there was a Carnival taking place too if you felt like taking a wild amusement park ride...
















    That's it for pictures that actually turned out well enough to post...

    Definitely the German Oktoberfest events are certainly something to put on your Bucket List!

    I'm from Michigan, and although I've been to Frankenmuth several times as a child, I've never had the pleasure of actually having fun there. If it's as good as everyone says it is, I'll have to check it out next time I'm in the area.
