Get ready to be walking among nearly 4,000 fellow Oktoberfesters at today's opening ceremonies in Waterloo. This number according to the city's Mayor Dave Jaworsky.
Jaworsky also says there are a few new items on the ticket this year.
"This afternoon we're going to be doing a keg-tapping in our Uptown with two of my new councillors, Royce Bodaly and Tenille Bonoguore. We're going to be raising the maypole and we'll also our 1919 Pierce-Arrow Seagram truck which is now 100 years old displayed in the Uptown area. I think everyone will have a good time. We're looking forward to seeing all 4,000 people."
Mayor Jaworsky adds, Oktoberfest is a great place for the city's university students to attend sanctioned parties as well.
The final KW Oktoberfest opening ceremonies will go down tomorrow at the corner of King and Frederick, downtown Kitchener.
The Oktoberfest Thanksgiving Day parade kicks off Monday morning.
