September 23rd, Munich. World-famous procession on the first Sunday of the Oktoberfest. A varied succession of regional costume groups, "troops" in historical uniforms, marching bands, riflemen, thoroughbred horses, oxen, cows, goats, the decorated drays of the Munich breweries, floats displaying typical local traditions and historic carriages all pass by in a 7-kilometer-long procession through the streets of the city center.
Mayor of Munich, Dieter Reiter.
