German-American Steuben Parade
March 10, 2013
This annual September parade down Fifth Avenue is more than 50 years old. According to its website, it has “grown into the largest event of its kind in the United States.”
The purpose is “to celebrate German-American culture and traditions, and to applaud the achievements of German immigrants to the United States.”
I am not a parade person, so I haven’t been to it on purpose, but I have twice intersected with it by accident when I was on my way somewhere else, and it looked like fun. You don’t usually see that much German stuff all at once anymore in modern-day New York!
