Knock Back a Few This Oktoberfest With Fun and Affordable Costume Ideas

MANCOS, CO--(Marketwired - Sep 4, 2013) - With so many Americans claiming German heritage, it's no surprise that the Bavarian celebration of Oktoberfest, which traditionally runs for 16 days in late September and early October, is one of the United States' most popular adopted traditions. Cities all over the U.S. honor their German-American residents with festivals that range from one- or two-day bashes to weeks-long shindigs.

These aren't small festivals, either. The largest American Oktoberfest, held in Cincinnati, draws half a million celebrants to its two-day-long festivities each September. Other major American Oktoberfest celebrations take place in Las Vegas; San Francisco; Mount Angel, Oregon; and LaCrosse, Wisconsin.

Oktoberfest dates back to 1810, when Prince Ludwig of Bavaria married Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen on October 12. All the residents of Munich were invited to this grand event, which included a horse race; the races were held again the next year, and soon the event became a part of Bavarian culture, even though the horse races are no longer held.

These days, Oktoberfest is so popular that it's not just those with a German background who participate -- especially in America, people from all walks of life join in the festivities. And Bavarian-themed Oktoberfest costumes let attendees party in true German style!
