Keg tapped, virtual opening ceremonies held for 52nd K-W Oktoberfest

There was a brief video message from Doug Ford

We can't be together because of the pandemic, but we can still Prost from afar! 

That's the message behind this year's altered K-W Oktoberfest. 

Opening ceremonies were held at the Region of Waterloo International Airport on Friday, but there was no crowd.

Instead, it was broadcast virtually. 

It featured a brief message from Ontario Premier Doug Ford - who encouraged everyone to enjoy themselves, but stressed it needs to be done safely and responsibly due to COVID-19. 

The keg also made a grand entrance this year, as it was brought in by helicopter.
