Ebbs Flower Parade – August 25th to 28th, 2016

The Flower Parade in Ebbs is a tradition: it is being held for the 19th time from August 25th to 28th, 2016. In 2016 the founders have put together an especially exciting program, and are bringing a true star of folk music to Ebbs in the Kaiser Mountains.

Flower Parade open air - Hansi Hinterseer with Original Tiroler Echo

For over 20 years the charismatic pop star Hansi Hinterseer has been exciting his fans with upbeat songs about the mountains, his homeland of Tyrol and love. As part of the 19th Flower Parade Ebbs, Hansi Hinterseer will be making a guest performance with Original Tiroler Echo on Friday 26 August, 2016, near the majestic Kaiser Mountains, and will give one of his open air concerts at the Flower World Hödnerhof. Advance booking starts on June 22nd, 2015.

New: Pop music day in the fortress city of Kufstein

It gets musical at the Flower Parade Ebbs in the nearby and often celebrated Kufstein, on the green Inn River: On the 27th of August the new Schlager (hit music from the 1970s and 1980s) day is being celebrated there, with music by Zellberg Buam, Sigrid und Marina, Melissa Naschenweng and other local groups.

Ebbs dedicated to flowers

For the traditional Flower Parade on Sunday 28 August, 2016, around 40 floats adorned with flowers will move through the town centre from 1:00 to 3:30 pm, and impress viewers of all ages. The flower floats will be accompanied by music groups from the region. A highlight at the end of the parade is the traditional awarding of a prize for the most beautiful float, accompanied by music and a varied supporting programme, at the Flower World Hödnerhof in Ebbs. The Flower Parade on 28th August is free to view.
