...is there a reason why a festival called "Oktoberfest" seems to be becoming more and more afraid of its namesake month (October)? This year it was held in AUGUST. Now I see that next year it's going to be held in JUNE?? I'm from New Orleans, Louisiana, and not even Mardi Gras and Easter are "all over the map (calendar)" like Oktoberfest is. At this rate, Oktoberfest will be held in January in no time. I hope you won't be choosing a snowy location then.
