The climax for the 181st Oktoberfest will be on October 5. But after the first glass of beer was poured on September 20 in Munich a huge crowd has already started the fun with the supply of 1.8 million gallons of beer.
6 Million People are expected to join the festivities. It is not all about the beer, the celebration includes bands, parade performers and more.
Here are some of the pictures so far to show the intoxicatingly fun Oktoberfest 2014:
Here are people raising their mugs
So many people stand at the side to witness the parade
They know how to wear those Bavarian outfits best
Munich Mayor Dieter Reiter taps the keg to open it
Bavarian Governor Horst Seehofer lifts his mug up
Some ladies in Bavarian dresses and a whole lot of beer
Cheers to all
What’s beer without good food?
Look at this sea of people
Arnold Schwarzenegger and a beer fest is a good combination
No beer for you yet
Trumpets heralding the start of the festivities
Drums signalling that the fun begins
Bavarian outfits in the parade
A parade would not be complete without an acrobatic air split
