Oktoberfest in Nevada
Apparently, Las Vegas is the only place in Nevada that knows how to party German style. With more than 300,000 residents with German heritage, Nevada citizens should be ashamed that I have discovered just two more Nevada Oktoberfest than I have in North Dakota. I expect that these Oktoberfests will be a little bit more of a party than the ones in North Dakota, though. So shorten your dirndl and party it up!
