I agree, there are many other celebrations exactly like the Oktoberfest in Germany. The second largest one I believe is the Wasen in Stuttgart.

I love Munich; it's such a beautiful city. Sadly, I didn't make it to Oktoberfest, but I did get the chance to go to Fruhlingsfest (sort of a smaller, springtime version). I'll have to make do with the oompa bands and sauerkraut out here at the random events the do in the States...

#3 is highly debatable. While Munich's Oktoberfest is the "only one of its kind", there are much smaller, similarly themed celebrations throughout Germany.

I've been to Oktoberfest and I only got 2 right. It's a fun time but I think it's a little overrated. If you want to party with Americans with a few foreigners thrown in go to the Haufbrau house in Vegas. :)
