Oktoberfest Harvard Square 2011
We finished out the weekend with an outrageous Polka on the streets of Cambridge with protest band Rude Mechanical Orchestra performing the "Smash-A-Banka Polka" and lots of delicious street food at Harvard Square's Oktoberfest 2011. This event just gets better and better each year. I have to say that Chez Henri, Russell House Tavern and Cardullo's were our favorite booths this year and the music, as you can see, was quite colorful. I was also impressed by the Happy Post Project, which seemed to get a LOT of attention with the crowd. I found it really interesting that despite the economy, politics, terrorism and what seems like a flood of bad news on a daily basis, people were so eager to jump up and say what makes them happy. Then again, my posts are always happy.
