The original Oktoberfest was a wedding celebration for King Ludwig I and his bride, Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghause on Oct. 12, 1810. Citizens of Munich were invited to celebrate on the Theresenwiese. There were horse races, and beer and wine tastings to mark the event. The next year, the horse races and celebrations were repeated to in homage to the king and queen, and a tradition was started. Within a few years, carnival attractions were added, and the city took over the management of the event. And because Germans are nothing, if not practical, it was also decided to move Oktoberfest back into September, to take advantage of better weather.
Every year the Oktoberfest Celebrations grow, and although many people think it’s all about the beer, the truth it, Oktoberfest is meant to be a festival for everyone with Carnival games and rides, as well as beer tents.
