Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest, what is it? Oktoberfest is an annual celebration that takes place in Germany. The celebration was started by the wedding of Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on October 12, 1810.

The people of Germany celebrated for a month of drinking, eating, and dancing. Later on they realized how enjoyable it all was, they decided to make it an annual occasion. In present day, it is now known as a big tourist factor in southern Germany and even many places in America with German heritage.

“It has become a cultural phenomenon,” said Mrs. Pergio, the German teacher. Each year about six million people come to attend Oktoberfest. This year the annual celebration is held Sept. 22 - Oct. 7.  

“I think this is a really fun celebration, especially the way we do it at school. Kids can get hands on with it, they make food and kinda get hands on the aspect of learning culture. Knowing what it is about and understanding it,” said Pergrio.

Teaching others about different cultural celebrations can help bring people together. Being able to put aside each others differences and to grow closer together can become help this corrupted world. This festivity of Oktoberfest is a fun and informative experience

Everyone loves to do celebrations. It does not matter what part of the world you are or what culture you are in. People gather around the world to celebrate anything special. Being together makes life happier. CHS Oktoberfest was held on Sept. 28 from 8am-4pm in the Culinary Arts Room.
