Oktoberfest, 2009

The Boston Globe checks in with pictures from this year's Oktoberfest.

The 176th Oktoberfest started on Saturday the 19th, kicked off by Munich Mayor Christian Ude, tapping the first keg with a cry of "O'zapft is!". With predictions of over 6 million visitors heading to Munich, the festival runs until October 4th. This year, a traditional liter of beer will cost visitors about 8 euros (11.75 dollars).

See all 31 pics at The Big Picture, which is a site well worth subscribing to.

if I recall correctly All of mine were 8.60 euros each, but worth every cent for the experience!

I've never been to the Oktoberfest; it does look like quite a party. Maybe I'll make it there someday.

As for today, I'll be at the Oktoberfest at The Huber Haus in Omaha!

have fun
