German-American Steuben Parade 2013

Thousands marched down Fifth Avenue this Saturday for the 56th annual parade honoring German-American culture. Lederhosen was proudly worn, fräuleins gallivanted through the Upper East Side, and tubas played loudly—there was no mistaking this for anything but America's largest Germanic heritage parade. This year, the march was led by U.S. soccer legend Werner Roth, German parliament member Harald Leibrecht and brewmaster Christian Dinkelacker—and NYC mayoral hopeful Joe Lhota joined the festivities as well. The celebration, fueled by lots of beer and brats, continued into the evening at Oktoberfest in Central Park.
