CINCINNATI (FOX19) - If you’re from Cincinnati or you’ve visited during Oktoberfest, you know the sights and sounds well, and that’s exactly what people from near and far experienced Saturday.
Peggy Huffmon, who is from Milford, is one of the thousands who made their way to second and third streets for the yearly event.
Some of the highlights of the event for her?
"The dancing, the atmosphere, the music, the fun, the beer, the food,” she said.
Huffmon had a front-row seat to Saturday’s biggest gathering. It’s the world’s largest chicken dance, happening on all Oktoberfest stages at the same time.
A family who spent some long-awaited time together also made their way to the second-largest Oktoberfest in the world.
Scott Stafford and his wife Sierra haven’t seen each other for nine months. They work for the military and are stationed in different states.
One of their relatives is from Cincinnati, which is why they ended up at Oktoberfest.
“So, this is basically our one-week reunion,” Sierra Stafford said. “I don’t know what else to say besides it’s a good time. Plus, being with my sister and brother in law — no better way to spend it.”
If you haven’t made it down to Oktoberfest, there is still one more day to enjoy the gemütlichkeit. The festivities continue Sunday 11 a.m.-9 p.m.
