German-American Steuben Parade of New York
Taking place on Saturday, September 19, 2015
Along Fifth Avenue from 64th Street to 86th Street.
We’ve been to this parade a number of times back when folks were actually allowed to congregate along the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. What a fine viewing spot that was. Unfortunately it’s rare that folks are allowed any more to stand on the steps there for the sake of taking in such parades. Regardless, this is one of those parades which yours truly has enjoyed thoroughly.
“The Parade’s goal is to provide the American public in general and our civic leaders in particular with a reminder of the part played by German immigrants and their descendants in the development of the United States of America. Today, we are proud of the achievements of hundreds of German-Americans, who shaped their new country.”
