The 62nd annual German-American Steuben Parade marches it's way up Fifth Avenue to kick off Oktoberfest.
This annual festival 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. Fifth Ave from 68th St to 86th St.
