Oktoberfest – 1986
Oktoberfest was officially opened at Laurier with the tapping of the beer keg. Onkel Hans, Miss Oktoberfest Adrienne Ross of Texas and WLUSU president Brian Thompson and others were on hand for samples.
Laurier tried to make it into the Guinness Book of World Records for the world’s largest bird dance. Due to inclement weather it soon turned into the world’s smallest and coldest bird dance.
The Kitchener-Waterloo celebrations were attended by over 750,000 people that year.
