The German Community in Puerto Rico celebrated its first Oktoberfest on October 28 at the Dorado Beach Resort in Plantation. The event turned out to be a unique mixture of traditional Bavarian food, German beer and German music performed by the Swinging Bavarian, combined with a Carribean touch of international food and Rum in an exclusive Resort atmosphere. The ticket price included all food & beverages. Puerto Rico Enlarge image (©

Honorary Consul Eric J. Stubbe made the impossible possible and about 600 people enjoyed a wonderful evening with unforgettable impressions of Puerto Rico. Thomas Strieben, Consul (for Legal and Consular Affairs) at the Consulate General in Miami offered Consular service in the morning before having the pleasure of attending the Oktoberfest, which hopefully will become a tradition in the years to come.
