The 43nd Annual Denver Oktoberfest...
Fred and Hertha Thomas owned two shops on Larimer Square (Cafe Promenade and Boutique Int'l).  In 1969, they decided to honor their favorite tradition in front of the Cafe, and quietly tapped a keg of Coors and served served some pretzels and white radishes.   Until 2007, the event was hosted in on the 14th block of Larimer St. and since it has been hosted on the 20th block of Larimer St. in historic Denver, Colorado.  The Denver Oktoberfest attracts over 350,000 people during the six-day festival.  It was quoted in Maxim Magazine and USA Today as "The Best Oktoberfest" in the United States and "One of the country's biggest and longest running traditions".
