Why there is no Mister Oktoberfest in KW?

This year marked the 49th Kitchener Waterloo Oktoberfest and had a traditional Miss Oktoberfest as an ambassador. But, what about Mister Oktoberfest? There is a controversy because only women can compete for the popular role that turns them into a recognizable face in the community. We wanted to find out what officials and public think about this novelty. The previous and present Oktoberfest presidents, Kitchener Mayor, and fest goers are giving their opinion about this issue. Next year, for the 50th jubilee, festival might have a new, male ambassador.
