This “Steinholding contest” was part of Oktoberfest at NOMA Square. The winners were able to continue holding their steins at arms length for a very long time. I wonder if it is possible to train for this competition with weights, but in any case I don’t think I could have beaten the top 2 competitors.

An expanded Oktoberfest was held at NOMA square – the entire block of Main Street was closed and was used for tables, children’s entertainment space, food and the Paulander Biergarten.

German bands and dancing provided entertainment in addition to the food and drink.

An “Honest Store” was set up in NOMA Square to sell Honest Tea products. The self-service payment system is placed in several cities and serves as a way to compare honesty: the payment amount should cover the number of products sold.
