Munich expects 6 million visitors at Oktoberfest

MUNICH (AP) — Four taps on the keg and the beer started to flow.

Munich mayor Dieter Reiter opened the city's annual Oktoberfest with the traditional call of "Ozapft is" to the delight of thousands who had managed to get a place in the main beer tent Saturday.

Some 6 million people are expected to visit what is billed as the world's biggest beer party that runs through Oct. 5.
