The Los Angeles Oktoberfest Brings a Little Bit of Munich to Los Angeles October 10, 2009 First Stein of Beer is on Us!

Online PR News – 25-August-2009 – – Los Angeles Oktoberfest, presented by Farmer John and LA Mart, invites you for a fun-filled day of German food, beer and live entertainment, Saturday, October 10. This event will be held at the L. A. Mart located at 1933 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA from 1-6 PM. Plenty of parking is available.

Los Angeles Oktoberfest will offer a 25 member Bavarian band playing live music, lively sing-alongs of old time drinking songs, a Polka band with Bavarian dancers, a special aerial show with showgirls costumed in dirndl dresses and a fine assortment of German food and ice-cold beer.

The opening ceremony is scheduled for 1 PM with city officials welcoming everyone with the traditional Tapping of the Keg. This Bavarian custom will officially tap the first keg of German beer by hammering a wooden mallet with a bronze spout into the keg -- then the fun begins.

Get your team ready for the LA Oktoberfest Beer Pong Tournament, presented by the California Beer Pong. Beer Pong is a game loosely based on ping-pong in which players throw a ping-pong ball across a table with the goal of landing the ball in a cup of beer. The team that ends up with no cups looses!
