Oktoberfest - a German tradition

*

   Oktoberfest, a German tradition since Crown Prince Ludwig was married to Princess Therese of Saxony Hildburghausen in 1810, was celebrated in Woodinville last Saturday and Sunday at the Gold Creek Equestrian Center. Sponsored by The World Cultural Foundation, the event featured authentic German music and dancing, German food and beer, and booth displays. The Die Rasenden Innviertler, above, entertained the crowd with traditional German songs while the Enzian Schuhplattler, a Bavarian Folk Dance group, danced.
