Oktoberfest has been many things over the years since the tradition began in Munich more than two centuries ago.

It started as a two-week celebration of the Oct. 12, 1810, marriage of the Bavarian crown prince and a princess from a nearby state. People had so much fun, especially at the post-wedding horse race, folks decided to do it again in 1811.

Oktoberfest officially became an annual festival in 1819 and has missed few years since. In many ways, it’s a super-charged version of a typical modern fall festival, with more than 7 million visitors enjoying carnival-style rides, attractions and signature foods like bratwurst and pork shanks.
