On the way to the Oktoberfest

The traditional costume and riflemen’s procession moved through the streets of Munich to the Theresienwiese on Sunday. There were members of the fanfare band from Gernlinden (from the district also the town band Germering). It’s been three years since the traditional parade took place, and the Oktoberfest has been canceled for the past two years due to Corona. Now the people of Gernlinden were able to line up again and, together with many other groups, set out for the Wiesn around ten o’clock in front of thousands of spectators. For this purpose, the participants met at seven in the morning in Bavarian costumes, as can be seen on their website. The people of Gernlinden, in the photo in front of the National Theater, have long been one of the groups that take part in the costume procession. They’ve been around since 1964. They also accompany the entry of the Wiesn landlords on the opening day. The procession of about 9,000 people wearing traditional costumes, riflemen and musicians was seven kilometers long.
