Back, once again, for a third great year is Palma's version of the massive Munich beer festival, the Oktoberfest! Even better, because we're in Spain, beer lovers don't even have to wait until
October to get stuck in to their favourite drink, because it all starts TOMORROW, 26th September until 6th October.
Organised by the Grup Trui events company, the Oktoberfest takes place under canvas in a specially erected marquee in the Parc de sa Riera, at the top of the 'canal' on the edge of the city. For
all the world visitors could be in a Munich Bierkeller, with live music, Paulaner beer and Bavarian food courtesy of Abel's all on tap.
It's a great atmosphere in the tent with the waiters and waitresses in traditional costume – lederhosen for the boys and dirndls for the girls – and big tankards of beer for all. The fun
takes place every day, from Monday to Thursday 19.00 to 24.00, Friday 19.00 to 02.00, Saturday and Sunday 12.00 to 02.00, so plenty of drinking time for everybody!
Just a little way out of the city centre, the venue is only a short taxi ride away, about six or seven Euros depending on traffic and traffic lights, so a snip between four people.
Doesn't it sound great? If you're disappointed that you won't be able to get to Palma to sample this wonderful beer, don't worry, because the 'fest moves lock stock and barrel to "/resorts/santa_ponsa.htm">Santa Ponsa beach from 10th to 20th October!
