Colorful parade through the city

On no other day of the year do the guards of the royal-privileged sharpshooters' society show so much public presence as on the first sunday of the sharpshooters' festival. Seeing and being seen was the motto of yesterday's holiday parade to the schutzenanger, where schutzenmeister siegfried jakel welcomed the numerous societies and friendly delegations from the city area.
