Oktoberfest In McKinney Is Fun!

It’s been a fun weekend for us. After sending the Balikbayan box which we have been busy filling in few weeks ago, my husband and I went to the Oktoberfest in McKinney Saturday afternoon. My husband’s friend invited us and he said it would be fun so we went there. We arrived at McKinney Square, where the event was held, at about 3’oclock and the place was full. They say Oktoberfest is a festival of German beers. Also there was Polka dancing, food, exhibits, shops, and 20 types German beer (we just tried two). Everybody enjoyed dancing while the band played Polka and upbeat music. German-Americans, guests, even kids danced Polka. I took some pictures to share. 'Hope you enjoy.
