Oktoberfest Zinzinnati

It's September, and for Cincinnati, that means Oktoberfest. We have the second-largest Oktoberfest in the world, after the original in Munich, of course.

The guy who plays Mini Me in the Austin Powers movies will lead the crowd in "The World's Largest Chicken Dance."

Let's see. Lederhosen, beer, chicken dancing...this must be Cincinnati.



Oktoberfest is a big deal here because there are so many people in this area whose ancestors came from Germany. Looking through a Cincinnati phone book would make you think you accidentally picked up a Munich phone directory.

As for why Oktoberfest is held in September, rather than September, legend has it the celebration traces its origins to a wedding part for a German prince that lasted from late September through early October.
