If you like beer, you would love this Houston Oktoberfest festival. Although there are some our door games, traditional Germany dancing performance, or food truck, I think this festival is really all about beer.

Some History about Oktoberfest, 

"What started as a royal wedding reception in Munich has turned into the largest festival in the world! On October 12, 1810 Crown Prince Ludwig (later to become King Ludwig) married Princess Therese of Bavaria. The two invited the citizens of Munich to attend the festivities and enjoy their celebration. The tradition has continued to grow over the past 200 years, as a variety of elements showcasing the German culture and community have been added to this 2+ week celebration in Munich. Traditionally, the festival runs for 16 days with the last day being held on the first Sunday in October." -- From Houston Oktoberfest, about us.
