Top Oktoberfests Outside Germany... #1 Kitchener

Who knew? The irony is that despite having grown up living in Waterloo, I can't say I've ever done anything Oktoberfest-ish save doing the chicken dance under threat of force in phys-ed oh so many years ago.  Ranked according to Cheapflights (Reuters):

1. Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, Canada Canadians pull out all the stops for nine days each autumn to create the largest Oktoberfest celebration outside of Munich. Based in Ontario's twin cities, Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest is a celebration the entire family can enjoy; the German extravaganza offers more than 40 family and cultural events, including the "World's Most Dangerous Bocce Ball Tournament." The celebration culminates at the Thanksgiving Day Parade, a televised spectacle of floats, entertainers and marching bands broadcast across the country. Dates: October 7-16
