Owners, employees and guests of the 551 breweries taking part in the 186th Oktoberfest marched through Munich on Saturday as part of the traditional parade that marks the beginning of the famously beery festivities.
According to custom, the parade is led by a young woman dressed as the 'Munchner Kindl' (Munich Child), the figure from the city's coat of arms.
Munich's First Mayor Dieter Reiter greeted Bavarian Minister President Markus Soder at the Schottenhammel festival tent, where the first keg of beer was tapped to mark the official opening.
Oktoberfest 2019 is set to take place from 21 September to 6 October.
