Oktoberfest 2012 is Almost Coming!

I almost forgot the famous and the biggest festival in the world, the Oktoberfest. Sad to say I cannot witness its opening because I am still in the United States. Yes, I am still in Las Vegas, Nevada. I will be backed to Europe next week.

Last night, I received a message thru facebook from my friend in Germany. She tried to call me in my Iphone but the signal in the area where I currently stays is not really good. My friend mentioned that she and some other friends want to go to the Oktoberfest in Munich. Since I am only the one who can speak German among my friends in our area in Upper Palatinate in Bavaria, they are always confident when I am with them. Besides I can also be their tour guide anywhere in Germany. That is quite a pleasure for me. My friend Joy is also proud after buying a Dirndl, the famous Bavarian traditional costumes.

I believed most of you are very familiar about the world’s most famous festival, the Oktoberfest.This year’s fair will start on September 22 until October 7, 2012.

Here are some images I took during my previous visit in that festival.
