It's always around this time of year that I wish I was in Germany. This past Saturday, the 178th Oktoberfest opened in Munich, with the traditional tapping of the first keg of beer by mayor Christian Ude. The Bavarian festival takes place over 17 days and about 6 million people are expected to attend. Attendance is free, but a mug of delicious beer costs around €9.20 ($12.60 U.S.). These shots were taken on the first weekend of Oktoberfest 2011. In Focus
is on the scene.
