Editor's note: We're about to move into a new building, so we're taking inventory of everything in our current one. We've found all kinds of interesting old stories and we're sharing the best of them here.

The tents are up, the beer is flowing, and the brats are on the grill—it's Oktoberfest weekend in Tulsa.

This year's Oktoberfest runs through Sunday at River West Festival Park.
