    Octoberfest 2010 Octoberfest 2010 Presentation Transcript

    • 2010
    • Oktoberfest marks 200 years MUNICH -- Two hundred years ago, Bavaria's Crown Prince Ludwig celebrated his royal nuptials with a big public bash that was such a hit it became an annual event -- and came to be known worldwide as "The Oktoberfest." His bride, Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghusen, gave her name to the Theresienwiese festival grounds upon which the event welcomes more than 6 million people a year for towering mugs of beer, oompah music and bright traditional costumes. The "Wiesn" -- as Oktoberfest is locally known -- was put on hold for various reasons during its 200-year history, including the two World Wars, the Franco-Prussian war, and cholera epidemics. While this year marks the 177th Oktoberfest to be held, 2010 is the 200th anniversary of the very first Oktoberfest in 1810.
