The District Oktoberfest kicked off its fifth year on Sept. 16, where locals got the chance to celebrate in the Chinatown neighborhood. Six bars and restaurants participated, including 10 Tavern, Rocket Bar and Fuel Pizza. From the beers to food specials to the live Bavarian music, the spirit of the famous German beer festival definitely came to life.
