The German American Steuben Parade took place on September 21, 2013 and I happened to be in the city that day. I wasn't aware it was going on until I got in my cab, but seeing this in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art was quite a site! They had about 5,000 marchers walking up 5th Avenue from 68th to 86th street. There were 20 groups from Germany plus one from Switzerland and Canada. I hope you enjoy some of my photos from the event.
I loved loved this vintage fire truck and the fact it actually still runs from 1906 amazed me!

These ladies were rocking these fabulous hats !!
Bucket List: Doing a handstand in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art
This was just way too darn cool
As I watched the parade, I looked up at the top of the museum. Normally I am just running in to see what great exhibits are going on, and do not really stay at the building itself. This was just so beautiful I hope you enjoyed the parade, and if you are in the city next year around this time, you may get to see it in person. A really fun event!
