Toronto Octoberfest 2015
A taste of Munich
My expectations was really high before attending the event. German beer, german food, dresses and entertainment. All you can expect from the festival. I've visited it on Friday. But my impression was really mixed. Of course you can not compare it with festival in Germany.. What I've found is half of people was really happy and another not so - sometime checking their phones. It was nice to see people in German dresses, 1 litre beer glasses and sausages.
Beer and Food
As of food there was German octoberfest classics: different sausages, pretzels, meat and sweets.. As of beer: all of beers was from Germany but only one especially for Octoberfest: HB. But unfortunately in the bottle. Sorry but I totally don't understand how you can pour beer from bottles and cans on such kind of festival. Anyway tap beer was delicious.. But I feel it could be little bit cheaper - 17 dollars for the litre is too much.. I did noticed one downside - is no easy accessible tap water.
There was some of entertainments such as pretzels throwing, cask rolling, some competition on the stage. Live music and dances. During 3 hours I've been there I did not noticed any really interesting competition except last one on the photo. No beer prizes. And unfortunately for me it was not really funny during event. I really appreciate organizers for trying to bring Octoberfest atmosphere in Toronto. Next year I would like to visit it on Saturday to see the difference.
