We hit the festival, armed with a video camera

It was a perfect day, talking to and checking out awesome bands, seeing how Atlantans were feeling about the return of this great festival, and catching some wild dancers in action.

See what this weekend's festivities at Der Biergarten are all about
It's fitting that Der Biergarten, Atlanta's only authentic German restaurant and bar, would host what is sure to be the biggest and best Oktoberfest celebration the city has seen: Munich on Marietta Street.

If you ran the Peachtree Road Race or even spectated in the vicinity of the Peachtree/Spring Street intersection, you couldn't ignore the Fur Bus Tailgate. The crazy, costumed folks behind the city's favorite party buses throw down like no other for the Fourth of July, and this year we had to see what it was all about...behind the scenes. And they actually let us.
