Need a break from all the Ebola scare, storm stealing your power, traffic extra horrendous today……Yes, tough week in Dallas!!! Take a break, with us, tomorrow, at the BEST festival right here in Lake Highlands Town Center Oktoberfest 2014….

As an American, I only thought of Oktoberfest as being completely touristy. Well, it is touristy, bringing in well over 6+million visitors for the event, every year. It is also the largest beer festival in the world. However, my husband, and other Bavarian Germans take their Oktoberfest very seriously. I learned this quickly when we had to reserve the last week of our three week honeymoon of cruising around Greece & Turkey for this Oktoberfest festival.

After attending Oktoberfest, in Munich, for nearly 5 years in a row, and again recently during a trip home to see his family, with our kids; we have always had a lot of fun dancing, singing, and enjoying Oktoberfest in Munich. This festival can never truly be replicated anywhere else.

However, because we love this festival, so much, and always have such a great time, now that we live in Dallas, we always try to attend the Lake Highlands Oktoberfest. Not only as community supporters but because the food served, band line up is so good and of course the beer rocks; really it always gets two thumbs up from my German husband; it is a great local festival.

Another thing we miss, living where we did in Germany, is being able to walk to the many festivals year round. However, much to our delight, Oktoberfest in Dallas, Town Center, is held within walking distance to us (also right off the DART Station). We get to walk to the Oktoberfest….

We miss the hugely, themed and decorated tents in Munich but it is nice having the festival outdoors as well and tomorrow, in Dallas, the weather is supposed to be around 70F to a high of 77F.
Oh my goodness, that is pure outdoor perfection! You don’t get that in Germany!
So German food, beer and fun with proper TX weather and the kin folk of Lake Highlands; Heavenly!!!!
