The parade of the winegrowers and the Baden wine-growing regions, which was carried out under the motto "Baden wine", took place on June 14, 1970 as part of the 850th anniversary of the city of Freiburg. The move started at 2:30 p.m. in bright sunshine and over 25 ° C heat. The film was filmed by the amateur filmmaker Helmut Eckert in 16 mm and subsequently set to music with original sound and snappy marching music. He positioned himself next to the grandstand. It documents in half-total to half-close shots, such as the Mayor of Freiburg Dr. Eugen Keidel and his wife in pink costume and fashionable, white hat greet the guests of honor personally. Then the move passes and many of the groups are captured on film. Again and again you see others with cameras and cameras; a professional team with a 16 mm camera on a tripod drives past in the car. Eckert mainly turns the winemaker's procession in a long shot from the guest grandstand. When groups greet the mayor, he turns the camera to the stands. The images are rotated in fixed settings without zoom and linked in the montage. The film is shot in color, with some of the pictures underexposed and therefore too dark.
The Baden wine has been known for its sunny locations since 1932 and has also been advertised since the 1960s with the widespread slogan "Pampered by the Sun" and with the "Sun Man" - which, incidentally, was initially a sun girl - as it did was the case on the vintner's procession with his own car. The Baden winegrowers decided to advertise together at that time, so they founded this umbrella brand to benefit together. In 2009, after various other organizational structures of joint marketing, the cooperatives, wineries and wineries of the region emerged as equal partners in Badische Wein GmbH, which has been marketing the Baden wine centrally since then.
When planning the vintner's move, they agreed to make it smaller, since the wagon builders were already too busy in the summer months to build the moving wagons. The design of the floats came from a single source, with the film concentrating on the music and traditional costume groups and, with the exception of the Baden winemaker's carriage with the wine queen, no other motif carriage. The float of the Baden wine queen was designed by Freiburg gardeners.
Details of the Parade
The vintner's move, which cost a total of DM 50,000, started at Werderring between Belfort / Rempertstrasse and went through Werthmannplatz, Rotteckring, Friedrichsring, followed by Kaiser-Joseph-Strasse, Holzmarkt and Wallstrasse to Greiffeneggring, Herrenstrasse and on the tin. Accordingly, the streets and areas have been temporarily blocked. This included Erbprinzenstrasse, Gartnerstrasse, Leopoldring and Karlsplatz - in short, the whole city center. In addition to 20 groups of traditional costumes, 15 floats, 120 horses, 15 fanfares and several chapels were involved. The group “Loyala Chapel” from Colmar in Alsace was also invited; however, it was already fully booked. Therefore, the Fédération des Groupes Folkloriques du Haut-Rhin took part in the parade. Like the other groups from France, this showed the close Franco-German relationship at such a public event.
Historical costume groups from the three sister cities Besancon, Innsbruck and Padua, which was present with the folkloristic group "Ruzantini Padova", were also represented. Also involved were the police music chapel in Basel, the Villingen vigilantes, the Waldshut marching band, Majorettes from Mühlhausen (Compagne des Majorettes de Mulhouse) and the Kirchheim Teck costume club. The guild group of female fishermen of the “wave-bengel-guild” drove in costume in a fishing boat on a wagon, pulled by a tractor. The winemaker procession was led by flag wingers and a fanfare train and completed by the Markgräflerland wine wagon. The Baden winegrowers involved came from the Ortenau, the Breisgau, the Kaiserstuhl as well as from the Tuniberg and the Markgräflerland. During the move, the rural youth distributed various wine tastings to the audience. This can also be seen in the film by Helmut Eckert, when the guests of honor are provided with wine by the rural youth in the typical small tasting glasses.
From the German / Swiss Zähringer cities, Burgdorf, Offenburg, Marten, Thum, Neuchâtel and Braunlingen were present. Because the move also wanted to commemorate the Zähringer tradition. This was a princely family in the 11th century, which was named after its castle Zähringen near Freiburg. The film concludes with a shot of the Münster on the market square, with detailed shots of the market and a shot of the Münster as the most important historical symbol of the city.
