On Saturday the 21st, Germans and German-Americans celebrated their heritage and traditions at the 2019 Steuben Parade in Manhattan. Fifth Avenue was transformed into a Straßenfest with German colors, German music and a folk festival atmosphere. The German Ambassador, Emily Haber, served as this year’s Grand Marshall and celebrated German-American friendship with thousands on the street. As every year, the Consulate General of Germany took part with its own float. This year’s float was dedicated to the 30th Anniversary of the Peaceful Revolution and the fall of the Berlin Wall. More than 50 employees joined the float and distributed flags, gummy bears, pins and much more to the numerous spectators along the parade route.
