The internationally renowned German beer festival known as Oktoberfest is taking place again at the Grand Hilton Seoul Convention Center, Saturday.

"The 2013 Oktoberfest is sure to live up to its reputation as one of the best beer festivals outside of Germany," said executive assistant manager Ashley Cheeseman in a press release.

The Oktoberfest band will headline the Grand Hilton Seoul Oktoberfest, which also features unlimited Paulaner draft beer, fun games, fabulous German food and many great prizes.

"Widely regarded as the ultimate Oktoberfest entertainers, the Paulaner Oktoberfest Band will play all the beer festival classics, ensuring an authentic and lively German atmosphere throughout the evening," Cheeseman continued.

With a strong following in Germany where they perform at the original Oktoberfest in Munich each year, the band has also held concerts all around Europe, the United States and the Asia Pacific."

With two types of unlimited cool Paulaner draft beer flowing, the Grand Hilton will serve up a selection of fabulous German food that's certain to satisfy.

Guests can enjoy crispy pork leg with apple sauce, famous meat loaf with sauerkraut or of course, a selection of German sausages. Others with a sweet tooth won't miss out either, with desserts including Black Forest Cake, homemade apple strudel and Linzer torte.

"As well as the music, guests will be kept entertained throughout the evening with participation party games and fun competitions," Cheeseman added.

Guests are also invited to purchase raffle tickets, which will go into a lucky draw to win great prizes.

"Authentically German and wildly fun, the 2013 Oktoberfest is not to be missed."

The Grand Hilton Seoul 2013 Oktoberfest will kick off at 6 p.m.

With numbers reaching 1,200, all drinking, dancing and enjoying the festivities together, one cannot afford to miss it.
