It was like Oktoberfest in August last night at the Tampa International Airport (TIA). Mein Heimatlund Musikanten, the Gulf Coast Enzianer Schuhplattler Dance Group, Old Castle Restaurant, and Cigar City Brewing gathered on the 3rd floor of TIA to help kick off a month of German festivities with oompah-rific, foot-slapping song and dance, and German food & beer samples. What’s all the celebration for? Starting on September 25 2015, Lufthansa will be offering direct flights from Tampa to Frankfurt. Check out the TIA events page online for concert times. The next big concert will be on Friday, August 28th, from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm.
