Oktoberfest 2011 Funny Bits

Every year around the world there are festivals of all kinds. In our area you can find Applefest, Cranfest, and the even-more popular Oktoberfest. We attend the Oktoberfest parade every year. I'll save all the details but suffice it to say, some people camp out all night to get a great spot on boulevard just to catch candy. These are but a few of the photos I took on Saturday before and during the parade.

This is the crowd milling about before it started.

The truck in the background is our "spot". Basically, it's front row seats.

Waaaaaay down the street in the background is the popo car that leads the parade down the street.

Of course, some have to have special shirts each year they attend. Can you tell what group of people settled this area?

Yes, this is a sport.

And this is how it's played.

There weren't as many funny moments this year. Last year, more drunk people gave me fodder with which to work. Last year had more amusing photo ops. So follow this link and you'll see more tomfoolery had by those who drink too much. You won't be disappointed.
