Where could you find whole five days of fanfare, festivities and frolic with the best of the ‘wursts’(bratwursts) sizzling away, liver pate with a typical German Salad, Apple Strudel Oktoberfest style, the frothiest of brews brimming over, and a whole lot of ‘oompah’? Yes, Oktoberfest Colombo lifted off in style from the 17th to the 21st of October 2012 at the CR&FC grounds, starting at 6pm daily. Sponsored by CR&FC, Yes FM, Elephant House, Mount Lavinia Hotel and SriLankan Airlines.
“It is indeed time that an authentic Oktoberfest took place with the right kind of brew and the food to complement it,” stated an Oktoberfest fan.
A host of unusual games typical of Oktoberfest were also on the cards, barrel rolling, hammer strength testing, brew drinking and a host of others were ready for the whole family to enjoy. In addition, firework displays every night added sparks to the carnival buzz.
