submitted 05October2010 by C. Marquardt  In honor of the 200th Anniversary of Oktoberfest in Munich an historical Oktoberfest is taking place along side the usual Oktoberfest. Each day Trachtenvereine, Trachtenkappellen and Goaßschnalzer perform on an outdoor stage in the arena and on an indoor stage in the Festhalle. Each day there are parades with the Trachtler with "König Ludwig I and his bride Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen" reenacting the wedding celebration in 1810 than began Oktoberfest.
