October Fest

Ever heard about the October fest? or festival? It’s like something in between a party, a festival and a fair that happens annually in Munich, Germany. And it lasts for 16 days. You can read more about it here. It’s always nice to learn something new.
Where I’m from we have something called the Winter festival week. It’s a week of fun for both children and adults. It’s more like a week-long carnival actually. What festivities are your part of the world known for? Let me know:)October Festival
