Jenny & Steve with Oktoberfest 2011 MC Tobias Klingelhoefer * "Prost!"

We enjoyed great beer including Warsteiner Oktoberfest & Dunkel, and Spaten Oktoberfest as well as music by the San Antonio Accordion Club, Beethoven Kinderchor, The Beethoven Concert Band with director Al Tapia and The Lamplighters, big band dance orchestra.  The Fire on The Mountain Cloggers also performed.  There was great people watching also and many people wore their German garbs:

As the night wore on more toasts were made and more beers were ordered.

Free Tickets at San Antonio Oktoberfest 2011

While standing in line for one of the last potato pancakes of the two weekend festival, a man walked up and gave the person in front of me (Jessica) about $20.00 in free tickets as he was leaving!   Rounds on her!!!

It was a great evening and I will definitely make plans to go back next year.  I’m not sure about the lederhosen, but I will think about bringing my own stein!
