The DVD includes the full TV broadcast of the Steuben Parade as seen on PBS - and much more: We have included two floats that didn´t make the original broadcast due to time restraints. We have edited a 10-minute "Best of..."-Reel, and we are proud to present the legendary Ehrengarde der Stadt Köln with a special performance of the "Star Spangled Banner" right on the red carpet in front of the Steuben Parade Grand Stand. The DVD includes interviews with both Grand Marshals, Nik Wallenda and Norbert Schramm, a special live performance by the Alex Meixner Band, music by the Foehrer Musik Freunde, and a special video introduction to Herbert Grönemeyer, one of Germany´s biggest rock stars, who will be touring the United States early in 2013.

The Steuben Parade DVD brings you all the marching groups, the bands from Germany and the United Stated, the dance performances by the Schlierachtaler Stamm, Original Enzian, the Erste Gottscheer Tanzgruppe, and Edelweiss Passaic.

Enjoy this great broadcast hosted by Laura Savini and Larry Mendte with special appearances by the wonderful Carol Alt, herself a former Grand Marshal, who was this year´s Street Reporter meeting and chatting up folks right on Fifth Avenue. See the Parade start with Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and enjoy the variety of groups from all ten marching divisions.

The DVD of the 2012 Steuben Parade is now available in our Online Store.
