On Saturday, the 178th Oktoberfest opened in Munich, Germany, with the traditional tapping of the first keg of beer by Munich's mayor, Christian Ude, shouting "O'zapft is!" ("It's tapped!")...... The Bavarian festival takes place over 17 days, and some 6 million people are expected to attend...... Last year, visitors drank more than 7 million one-liter mugs of beer........ Attendance is free, but the beer will cost you: The price of a mug at any of the 14 tents this year comes to 9.20 ($12.60 U.S.)....... Gathered here are some of the scenes from Oktoberfest 2011's first weekend. [40 photos]

I actually attended Oktoberfest in Frankfurt, Germany about 15 years ago....I became a beer person that year. :D

Next month, I will be attending Oktoberfest in Helen, Georgia...okay, not the real deal..but close enough for me.

Never attended the Fest when I was in Germany but drank my share of brews.

I made the one in Munich once, probably the year before that. It's amazing I made it back, for a host of reasons, and I'll leave it at that.

There are a lot of things in the world that look as good as attractive German girls in their dirndls, but not much of anything I can think of that's actually better.
