Five years ago, a group of German expats living in Peru decided to celebrate the traditional Oktoberfest. Little did they know that this would turn into an event of such magnitude that in 2005, 10,000 revelers consumed thousands of liters of beer, as well as 1,500 kilos of German sausages, 5,000 pretzels, 600 kilos of potato salad, and 400 kilos of sauerkraut.
In addition, to the drinking and eating, there will be dancing to traditional oom-pah-pah music played by German musicians in town for the festivities.
