Fifth Ave from 68th St to 86th St. This annual march is named for General Baron Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben, who helped out George Washington in a little scuffle known as the American Revolution. The parade continues to honor German immigrants and their descendants with plenty of dirndls and lederhosen, and beer steins at a ticketed (and sold out) Oktoberfest after-party in Central Park.
