Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany, is the world's largest beer festival, an event that lasts for 16 days starting in late September through the first week of October.
Elsewhere, it tends to be more of a one-day festival, like the 10th annual Charleston Oktoberfest at Blackbaud Stadium on Sunday.
In honor of the festival, we're raising our stein to all things Oktoberfest.
Last week's winner of a tie-breaker and current Head2Head champion, Melinda Yoder, is going up against nanny Kayla Clark.
