Oktoberfest here in Townsville has always been a massive event as there is a very large German population here who organise the event extremely well indeed!! The food is always so deliicious,though not the healthiest to be eating on a regular basis! I am not a huge drinker at all,so the alcohol did not interest me. The dancing and the fellowship however was delightful!!
No, I haven't ever attended any Oktoberfest celebrations. I also don't like beer, or a lot of noise! I'm also 2 busy going to Melbourne for 1 week in Oct & worrying about which day we'll go & see Sculpture by the Sea (or SxS) so even if there was an Oktoberfest happening in the Shire where I live, I would NOT bother going to it.
