The Düsseldorf Fun Fair (from 14 - 23 july 2017) has a long history. The celebrations took place 690 years ago, when the local shooting club, San Sebastiano, started celebrating its patron's day.
The event starts with one of Germany's largest parades. More than 3,000 protesters are marching through the streets of Düsseldorf.
There are horse and foot uniform shooters, bands and other traditional teams. Today the fair is one of the biggest outdoor festivals in Germany.
Due to its popularity, there are about four million visitors expected to come down to Düsseldorf for the 115th edition of this moon park. A highlight of the fun fair in Düsseldorf is the historic procession, which is one of the largest in Germany.
The event is one all the family can enjoy, with its state-of-the-art rides.
