MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - KEYC News 12 This Morning celebrated Oktoberfest last weekend, joined by Kyle Marti from Schell’s Brewery in New Ulm.

Octoberfest began with the royal German wedding of Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese in October 12, 1810.

Now, 186 years later, Oktoberfest has spawned into a festival that’s made its way all the way over here to southern Minnesota.

KEYC participated in games like “The Human Puppet," a Stein Holding Competition, and “Hit the Head on the Nail with a Pointy Hammer."
