The opening of Oktoberfest 2013. - a news special produced by 519Online News.
#MyOktoberfest moment? Dreaming of schnitzel, pretzels and sausage when it’s still early spring, trying to buy Oktoberfest tickets in advance… and sitting through server crashes and busy phone lines. Why? Because despite all the trouble, it’s totally worth it!
#myoktoberfest is remembering the moment when my Uncle Ziggy brought Miss Oktoberfest 1992 - Particia Buchanan to our house for a visit on Thanksgiving. This was definitely the best moment EVER for a 10 year old girl! I still share this story with friends and family today. Truly a moment in my life that I will never forget!
It was 1988. I was 7 years old. I just learned what a Drum and Bugle Corps was. I played drums, and we played at the old Twist for three nights. Monday was the parade. I had never marched in a parade before. It was the longest walk of my life at that time. Now I have done the parade 15 times and played in numerous other halls since. Last year I had the privilege to play with the Prime Time Brass and do the keg tapping at city hall. This year I have no plans for Oktoberfest but would love to get out and see it from the spectator side.
