OktoberfestOn the first day, Saturday, I went to Charley's village's Oktoberfest. Her youth group worked and set up the event. All the girls (even the adults) were in traditional dresses. I wore a traditional dress also. The boys wore high waisted shorts, long socks, and blue or red plaid shirts. At the event there was food, drinks, and dancing. I learned how to do a traditional German dance also. The band was playing traditional folk music the whole time. At one point, there was a sing along, congo line, and group dance that I took part in. I had no idea what the lyrics were, but I just followed along and had a blast. It was a great way to kick off the trip!
