How was your experience?
This is a nice way to spend a day on a weekend. The boat ride was pleasant. Weather - gorgeous (that helped a lot). Octoberfest was a fine event, too. Good beer, good food, nice music. The food was all fresh, fun to try, and we did not find it overpriced. The line gets long, and moves fast. We brought snacks for the boat ride, but had lunch at the festival. Of course, a couple groups of young people got drunk, loud and obnoxious on the way back. Thanks to the crew who handled it in the professional way. All in all, we had fun.
