Oktoberfest in Boone, NC

This past weekend we escaped to the mountains for a little r+r and, most importantly, to celebrate Ian's birthday.
After a hike Saturday morning, we headed to nearby Sugar Mountain for Oktoberfest.  This is one of our normal skiing spots.  I'm not used to seeing this mountain not covered in snow, but it was a fun change!


The festival featured authentic German music ("Oy! Oy! Oy!") and dancing, Spaten on tap, and of course, bratwurst and German potato salad. 




We struck up a conversation with a man from Germany who has been in the US for not even 10 years.  I asked him how we were doing at our little version of Oktoberfest.  He said we were definitely doing it justice!

I hope we can make it back next year, too.
Prost!
