Historic Kindermasken Parade

Be part of New Braunfels’ oldest heritage tradition, the historic Kindermasken Parade! Hermann Seele, one of the city’s first teachers, founded this costumed parade for school children as early as 1856. He wanted a May Day celebration for children to remember their German heritage. Some local families have participated in the parade for seven generations! Make historic Kindermasken Parade a part of your family tradition. 

The 163rd annual Kindermasken Parade will be held in conjunction with Wein & Saengerfest again this year on May 4, 2019! Lineup will be at the central fire station off of Hill st. at 11:00 AM. Parade will begin at noon and will travel down San Antonio Street to the Bandstand in the center of town square. This event has been going strong since 1856 so if you have any kids or grandkids who want to dress up and join in on the fun spread the word! Lets keep this wonderful tradition alive! Prizes will be awarded for best costume!
