Fall is officially here… and that means pumpkins, Halloween and Oktoberfest! 

Oktoberfest typically draws in about 6 million visitors every year to packed festival grounds in Munich. The popular event is returning this year after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

At Oktoberfest, you can try German food, especially sausages, giant Bavarian pretzels, and of course a wide array of beers. 

You don't need to travel to Germany to get the full Oktoberfest experience, there are tons of events being held in Southern California.
