Just because the festivities of Oktoberfest are over, doesn't mean we can't keep celebrating! One sure way to keep one of the most popular German traditions alive is to wear an Oktoberfest costume for Halloween. Oktoberfest and Halloween are both fun and festive celebrations in the month of October. Candy is to Halloween what beer is to Oktoberfest! Halloweenexpress.com has some great Oktoberfest costumes!  If you have a significant other, it would be a lot of fun wearing the Oktoberfest girl and the Lederhosen guy costumes! 


If you've never been to an Oktoberfest celebration in your neck of the woods, you're missing out on a lot of fun! Even though the original Oktoberfest was held in Munich, Germany in 1810, you don't have to travel all the way to Germany to get a feel for what Oktoberfest is all about; German immigrants brought the tradition with them to the United States. It's not surprising then that in the US, with the high percentages of people of German heritage, there are hundreds of local Oktoberfest celebrations.

I found this list of the top ten Oktoberfest celebrations online.
