Horses and jockeys race during the opening ceremony of the ‘Historical Wiesn’ on September 17, 2010 inMunich, Germany. This year marks the 200th anniversary of Oktoberfest.   The original Fest was the celebration of a royal Bavarian wedding. Princess Teresa of Bavaria had married crown prince Ludwig I (later king of Bavaria) on the evening of October 12, 1810. The next day, the city began celebrating the wedding with various activities, including concerts, parties, balls, and even a horse race on the 17th. It all went so well that the Bavarian royal family decided to hold another race a year later, beginning the Oktoberfest tradition. (Getty Images)
