The party continues late into the night after the fireworks, but sleeping in the next day is not a good option. Why? Because the big Parade kicks off at 11am the next day. The parade’s course runs directly through the city centre and if you come too late, you’ll be designated a spot in the back of the crowd and won’t be able to see anything. In the early afternoon competitions and the traditional ‘Bürgerkönig- Cup’ shooting take place. Round by round only the best competitors move forward as those unsuccessful are eliminated. The shooting performance of the Mayor is a special highlight, especially for the marksmen. If you are looking for a bit of variety, explore the fairground. Here, numerous showmen show off their best tricks. There are also fun rides for young and the old, sometimes simply watching the rollercoasters is thrilling enough! If you feel like a little more peace and quiet, then sit down in one of the numerous cafes on the waterfront, have a coffee and enjoy the view of the Müritz or the hustle and bustle in the streets.
If you find day 2 a little too strenuous as the champion marksmen to-be persevere late into the evening , return to the festival after a bit of an afternoon nap, because later in the evening there is a special awards ceremony for the shooting competitors and winners. This ceremony is a highlight of the festival program followed by a big party to celebrate the winner. Everyone heads to the fairground promenade on the Müritz for a big party. One of the regional radio stations take over and set the tone for the rest of the evening.
