On September 21, 2014 more than 9,000 Trachtler, Musikanten and Schützen marched in the Trachten- und Schützenumzug through Munich to the Wiesn - the Oktoberfest grounds. This year, for the first time, almost 300 Trachtler from Gauverband Nordamerika also marched in the 7 kilometer parade. The reasons for the invitation to participate were the 100th Anniversary of Edelweiss, Chicago and the 50th Anniversary of Gauverband Nordamerika. Leading "block 26" was the Trommlerzug Huglfing.

The chart of the parade line-up order has changed. The changes are predominantly in the section with the ladies who do not wear the Janker (sleeved jacket). Additionally, one flag has dropped out (another was dropped on 9/4), another has been added. Other than the parade chart, none of the other pages changed. See you in München! -Karin
