2009 Annual German-American Steuben Parade

Yesterday, the 52nd Annual German-American Steuben Parade was held on Fifth Avenue. I took these photos of some of the participants on 68th Street. The parade featured 25 groups from Germany, among them some of the best marching bands, carnival groups and Trachten, as well as German-American groups from across the country - from the tri-state-area to Wisconsin, California, and Philadelphia. Among the themes highlighted in this year´s Steuben Parade is the 60th Anniversary of the Federal Republic of Germany as well as the 20th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
