It comes but once a year, and like Christmas, it's a day to look forward to and treasure when it does.

We're talking about Bayern Munich's traditional trip to Oktoberfest, the huge beer festival held in Bavaria.

As usual, there were some great pictures from the event as the football stars donned traditional dress and brought along their families for the event.

For some, including Xabi Alonso who joined from Real Madrid over the summer, it was their first taste of the festival. Others, including Bayern mainstays Phillip Lahm and Thomas Muller, looked at ease in their lederhosens.

Manager Pep Guardiola was also at the festival and appeared more than happy to raise a glass, probably owing to Bayern Munich sitting clear at the top of the table.
