Oktoberfest ist WUNDERBAR!

With 115 days to go, tickets for the 2012 festival are now on sale.

The Bavarian extravaganza offers more than 40 family and cultural events, including the ever popular Thanksgiving Day parade.

Executive Director of KW Oktoberfest, Mark Kreller, tells 570 News there is a lot of work involved to make sure the event runs smoothly. Kreller says that the festival is quite the production.

He adds that the online issues customers may have experienced last year, courtesy of a hacker, have been fully resolved.

This year’s festival runs from October 5th to the 13th.

K-W Oktoberfest evolved from a 200-year old German tradition and next to the Munich festival, is the world’s second largest Oktoberfest.
