Off to the fan parade!
For many years now the Fan Parade has been an integral part of the race week in Val Gardena/Gröden. The time has come again right before the classic downhill race on Saturday: Hundreds of fans will then march from St. Christina to the finish area of the Saslong.
The colorful groups will march through the centre of the village from 10:45 am with banners, bells, drums and trumpets before reaching the Saslong finish stadium shortly before the start of the downhill race. There are separate grandstands reserved for all fan clubs, where they can loudly cheer on their favorites and fire them up to win the race. Once again this year, several hundred fans from home and abroad are expected at the parade.
During the fan parade, a jury will evaluate the individual fan clubs and award the most creative or meaningful among them. The winning fan club can look forward to a by now traditional one-day summer excursion to Val Gardena/Gröden including free use of the lifts and a surprise at an alpine hut.
