Get your yodel going at Oktoberfest
In this scene from the movie European Vacation, Chevy Chase's character is about to break into a fight with a bunch of lederhosened lager-schlagers for messing up their folk dance.
The scene was a spoof of the historic German beer drinking celebration, Oktoberfest. Crowds gather to enjoy traditional Bavarian music, dance, activities and eating, all washed down with a surplus of beer.
The annual event is already underway in its home country but mini-versions are starting to pop up across B.C.
In Merritt the 3rd annual Oktoberfest kicks off at the Civic center Friday night. It's put on by The Knights of Columbus who also use it as a fundraiser.
Lea Mack, one of the organizers, put on his best yodel for Daybreak host, Chris Walker.
