September 14, 2011 (CHICAGO) --The 26th Annual Berghoff Oktoberfest got off to a bit of a soggy start. Despite light rain, people still flocked to Federal Plaza Square for some lunchtime beer and brats, as well as other German food.
On Thursday, the Berghoff restaurant will unveil a 45-foot brat at the celebration. They're hoping it will be entered into the Guinness Book of World Records for the "Midwest's Longest Brat."
Oktoberfest runs through Friday.
