Rose Monday is also an important date in the carnival season for Bonn carnival revelers. So it is a matter of honor that no carnival enthusiast misses the Bonn parade. The theme of the parade this year is: "Jötterfunke överall - Ludwig, Bonn un Karneval" and the Bonn royalty couple Prince Richard I. and Bonna Katharina III will be on hand for the event.

Once again this year, around 80 floats and thousands of costumed carnival revelers will set out from Thomas-Mann-Strasse to complete the 3.8-kilometer-long route through the city center and Altstadt to Dorotheenstrasse.

Parade route and security

About 220,000 Jecken (carnival revelers) watched the parade from the roadside last year - which was about 30,000 less than the year before. But some Bonn residents were not deterred by the wind gusts and rain showers during the 2019 parade. Still, parade director Axel Wolf decided to do without horses for safety reasons. In this year’s parade, however, the horses will also be a part of the Rose Monday procession.

As in previous years, the Bonn Carnival Festival Committee will not allow Kamelle (sweets) to be thrown out when the parade stops. Adults should pay particular attention to the children. At so-called children's collection points along the parade route, adults can be reunited with their children if they have become separated from each other in all of the commotion.

It is even safer beside the individual floats. Because in addition to the six or eight persons who accompany the float (depending on the size of the vehicle), there is always someone there who is specifically responsible for safety and has a two-way radio along.
