October 1, 2016 (La Mesa) - This year's Oktoberfest in La Mesa was packed! There were tons of people enjoying all the street vendors.
My favorite booths were a unique booth that sold all types of wooden swords from samurai swords to knight swords. My other favorite booth was of course, me being the sportswriter, a booth dedicated to all things sports! I bought a New England Patriots oven mitt because I'm a Patriots fan who's afraid of ovens and hot things.
There was, of course, the food and beer. I sampled some Oktoberfest beer from Tiramisu. DELICIOUS! I also tried some bratwurst loaded with onions and it was spicy but delicious as well!
For dessert, I tried some apple strudel. It was so yummy! It had nuts and raisins in it, an interesting twist.
My only criticism is that I wish there were more places to get beer, but other than that, it was a lot of fun to walk around and see everything.
