Caught the tail end of the parade in Ihringen last Sunday. Thousands of people were lining the streets, tourists mostly as it is a small town. I couldn’t get close to the action and had to settle for some shots from farther away.
I think the throngs may be explained by the sharing of the fruits of the harvest. Those in the front row all had glasses in their hands, which were refilled by willing participants from the parade floats, which appeared to be all pretty much related to area vineyards.
