First of all, I want to apologize for not having blogged for the past few weeks. These few weeks have just been a blur, had a lot of things that needed to be done & needed my attention. This weekend i finally had a chance to unwind & bond with my girlfriends at the Oktoberfest that took place at Impala Grounds, Ngong' road.
Oktoberfest is an annual event hosted by Big Five Breweries & this year's event it was a three day beer festival with premium brewed beers going for as cheap as Ksh 200bob , hearty German food fare, live entertainment, a selection of fashion & accessories for fashionistas, a variety of wines & spirits for taste buds as well as electronic technology and other business service providers tempting their wares

The opening ceremony started on Friday at 5:00 p.m with the battle of Rock bands. Over 10 bands battling it out ( I think this was the biggest battle of rock bands i have seen in this country) & the traditional tapping of the KEG ceremony led by a VIP guest from the German embassy.On saturday featured great performances by wyre, kidum, nameless amongst others and on sunday was a family-fun day featuring a jazz jam session hosted buy Denise Gordon & guest performances by eric wainaina & harry kimani

Big Five Breweries launched the African centre for volunteers scholarship Fund at the Oktoberfest. With mission to educate some 50 children from the slums for high education. The Big Five Breweries has shown a desire to support community development projects which is also part of their business engagement.Funds raised from this year's Oktoberfest will be used in this noble cause.
As my friends & I walked out of the impala Grounds on sunday evening, we felt the event was worth every shiling we paid for. would we do it again? Definitely:-)
