Funny, I was just sitting here thinking about what I would do this weekend (besides some time at the office) and just realized that this is the last weekend for the amazing Oktoberfest celebration up at Snowbird.

This event is always a great time no matter which weekend you decide to go and for me I guess this year it is the last weekend.

Snowbird's Oktoberfest began in 1973 when two men costumed in leather lederhosen, inspired by the towering mountains that reminded them of their homeland, came to Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort to play their accordions and sing in their native German tongue.

 Attracting over 60,000 visitors, Oktoberfest has grown to become one of the largest festivals in Utah. Oktoberfest includes Oktoberfest Halle featuring the tastes of Bavaria with entertainment from local and national German bands and yodelers.

Hi Corey. I had almost forgotten how much I enjoyed those Oktoberfest while I was stationed in Germany back in the 70's. I can see why it has become one of your largest festivals in Utah. 60,000 visitors is a very impressive number.
