It's that time of year again. Oktoberfest season is here!

This week, activity has officially begun as trucks roll onto the Theresienwiese in the middle of Munich to bring containers and truckloads full of construction materials to build the tents and infrastructure for the 183rd Oktoberfest.  After the basic installations are built, the fun begins with decorating the huge beer halls and bringing in German Beer by the hundreds of thousands of liters as well as thousands of ceramic German beer steins.  Then of course, comes the entertainment...
