Oktoberfest data

KeefieBoy's comment about the ratio of visitors to the Oktoberfest in Munich and the quantity of beer they imbibed moved me to re-check the statistics. And the official website is here.

The disparity is doubtless a consequence of the fact that a visit to the Wiesen is also often a family outing, with the fairground rides and sideshows being the main attraction for many of those attending, indeed for all below drinking age.

My offspring reports that she and her clique usually drank each only one litre glass of Bavaria's finest on each of their half-dozen sorties during the sixteen-day event.
