Pittsburgh, Philly rank top 20 for the best Oktoberfest celebration


(WTAJ) – It’s that time of the year! Oktoberfest is about to hit the United States in a big fashion and WalletHub has ranked the top 20 cities to celebrate.

Spending years living in Philadelphia, it’s no surprise to me that they broke into the top 5. I used to venture to a German club with my wife called the Saengerbund. It’s just outside of Philly, but it was an Oktoberfest I’ll never forget.

Pittsburgh ranks number 15 in the top 20 cities, that’s awesome… no, it’s super awesome… no, it’s UBER awesome.

For anyone who is unsure, “uber” is a German word meaning “over” “above” and/or “beyond”
