St. Louis’ Soulard Oktoberfest…voted one of the top ten best places to celebrate in the country. The 3-day event features lots of music, a brat-eating contest, a beer stein-holding competition, a strongest beer maid contest and a beauty pageant (judged by Thom and Jeff) with contestants decked out in traditional German garb (or bikinis if they forgot their dirndl).
