The 2013 Oktoberfest is now over and the amount of beer consumed during this year’s festival was quite impressive. 6.4 million Visitors from all over the world managed to drink 6.7 million litres of beer, that’s on average just over a litre each. The total amount spent by the visitors was around 400 million Euros, an average of 62.50 Euros each.
Where there’s alcohol there is always unrest and accidents, and this year the police were involved with 2031 incidents. The Red Cross also had to help 7551 guests who had mostly been injured by broken glass with around 630 also being treated for alcohol poisoning.
Another common occurrence when large quantities of alcohol is consumed is the misplacement of belongings and this year’s festival saw the lost and found office collect 1056 passports, 520 wallets and 320 mobile phones, as well as some more unusual items such as a Segway and a set of artificial teeth.
Oktoberfest 2014 starts on Saturday 20th September and will end on 5th October. So in honour of this historic celebration and with Halloween approaching I am holding Travel on Inspiration’s first ever contest giveaway.
I will be giving away both a Male and Female Oktoberfest fancy dress costume, with RRP’s of £21.99 and £24.99 respectively. The male costume is size medium, chest 38-40 inches and waist 32-34 inches and the female costume is size small, UK 8-10, US 6-8 and Euro 36-38.
With Oktoberfest just finished these would make ideal Halloween costumes and would be sure to get everyone in the party mood.
