Saengerbund都会举办啤酒节。原本的啤酒节庆祝活动是于1810年,在德国一个叫做巴伐利亚的地区举行;同年十月,路德维希一世国王(King Ludwig I)娶了特蕾西亚(Theresia)公司,而全国民众都受邀参加他们的结婚典礼,它因而成为一个 一年一度的活动。时至今日,全球各地都会举办啤酒节。

Saengerbund是一个德裔美人的歌唱及社交俱乐部,它是1800年代中期,由来到美国的德国移民所发起;在他们初来乍到的国家内, 与人们分享他们的文化。特拉华州的啤酒节为期三天,内容包括了德国的歌唱、舞蹈、音乐及当然还有食物。

What do you think the children in the photo are doing? They are doing a German-style dance in traditional costumes.

Every year, Oktoberfest is celebrated in Delaware by the Delaware Saengerbund. The original Oktoberfest celebration began in a part of Germany called Bavaria in 1810. In October of that year King Ludwig I married Princess Theresia, and the public was invited to the wedding celebration. It became an annual event, and today Oktoberfests are held all over the world.

The Delaware Saengerbund is a German-American singing and social club that was started in the mid-1800s for German immigrants who had come to America. It was a way for people to share their culture in their newly adopted country. The Delaware celebration of Oktoberfest is three days of German singing, dancing, music and, of course, eating.

Unlike most Oktoberfests, which are held in October, the one in Delaware is held in September. Can you guess why? Because the weather is warmer then!
