Always a family tradition for us, we spent the day in the mountains enjoying the German festivities of Snowbird's Oktoberfest. The leaves already showcasing their rich fall wardrobe and the air adorning it's crisp chill, it was one great way to spend an afternoon. Never to be missed are the German festivities in the main tent where the "chicken dance", liederhosen and brats are in abundance. Also, I heard you got a special prize if you have a real friend named Hans, which we do...but there was no prize. Actually, I think the story went that I thought there SHOULD have been a prize if you have a friend named Hans. Maybe I'll throw that out year for next year's festival. I'm sure they'll think I'm brilliant.
