Oktoberfestivities (noun; slang; origin: danglish)

Oktoberfest is a three-week festival held each year in Munich, Bavaria, Germany during late September and early October. It is one of the most famous events in the city and the world's largest fair, with some six million people attending every year.

Oktoberfestivities are those events which occur in celebration of Oktoberfest. While the true Oktoberfest is celebrated in Germany, Oktoberfestivities occur throughout the world. They include but are not limited to: beer drinking (in tents or bars), eating traditional German cuisine in large quantities, and musical entertainment.

Oktoberfestivities should be enjoyed with caution. There are many problems every year with young people, who overestimate their ability to handle large amounts of alcohol. Many pass out due to drunkenness. These especially drunk patrons are often called "Bierleichen" (German for "beercorpses"). If lucky, they are brought by staff to a medical tent where drunks as well as sick people are treated.
The movie Beerfest has many oktoberfestivities as part of the Oktoberfest celebration.
