Enjoying the atmosphere at Oktoberfest at the Winter Gardens on Saturday

Oktoberfest at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool - here are 18 pictures of the brilliant Bavarian-style event

Blackpool’s Winter Gardens played host to its first-ever Oktoberfest on Saturday – and it’s fair to say, judging by our pictures, a great time was had by all!

Oktoberfest is one of Europe’s largest indoor Bavarian-style festivals. The mega-popular event, attended by hundreds of happy stein swiggers at the Winter Gardens, included a showcase some of the best and authentic oompah bands from around the world, a large selection of traditional German foods plus two-pint steins and bench seating.

Enjoy the pictures!
