2 Days Off

And they started Octoberfest!

It opened up with a roar on the 21st of September. The celebrants gathering in the 10s of thousands in Munich to celebrate the wedding of King Ludwig I to the Princess Therese. They gathered in the fields not far from Munich to toast the newly weds.

That was 180 years ago. It is now so very much more, but in short it is the world's largest fair, drawing over 6 million people.

Though we can't be there this year, the Trolls always join in on the fun, opening the tap at 10 in the AM during the 16 days (as opposed to the normal noon)!
