On September 14, a bit of Bavaria came to Riga. The brilliant Oktoberfest band “Harthauser Musi” brought authentic Oktoberfest atmosphere into the H2O Architecture and Media Center, where the numerous guests were supplied with enough pretzels, “Weißwürste”, “Hendl”, “Obatzda”, “Haxn” and of course the original Oktoberfest beer from Paulaner. After the traditional tapping of the cask, guests had the chance to win amazing prizes – which were generously provided by our sponsors – by playing traditional beer tent games, such as “Bierkrugstemmen” or “Biertischlupfen” or spinning the wheel of fortune. Until late at night there was dancing on the dance floor and on the benches.
