Friday the 12th of July 2019 this year’s festival started – Sonderburg Rinriding (to make it easy) – the original title would be Tilting at the ring festival…
This year we had marching bands, military bands and city guards from our own City – Sonderburg Guards and Sonderburg Pipes and Drums & Amazing Pipes and Drums with visitors from Alborg and Broager to enlarge the entire Pipes and Drums experience, we had bands from from Aarhus, from Nakskov, and from England, Bulgaria and Ukraine. The horse carriages carried local bands from Danfoss (a world known factory) and a band from the firebrigade.
Furthermore there were horses and ritters who were to compete catching the ring which grows smaller and smaller the further into the competition they get.
This gallery shows the parade of the first day.
