Ebbs flower parade
Vehicles in bloom
It slowly comes around the bend. Meanders past the church. Mouth wide open. Its yellow-purple spotted tail topped by green bristles. Its head towering loftily above the crowds of people. The flower heads between the wide spaces in its teeth shine out, a deep red. Floral art perfection. This is Ebbs flower parade.
A floral-filled four days
Austria’s largest flower parade in Ebbs is being held for the 23rd time in 2020. Concerts. Flower sticking party. Pop music day. Village party.

Floral art meet music
Flowers at your feet. Music in the evening. The second day of the Flower Parade weekend is dedicated to gaining a small insight into the art of flowers. The evening is all about celebration and music, with the folk music star Hansi Hinterseer.
Festive open air
From 8:00 pm (admission starts 6:30 pm) the fortress in Kufstein starts warming up. The charismatic folk music star Hansi Hinterseer comes to Kufsteinerland with his upbeat songs. It is a special musical experience, with the Tyrolean Mountains of Kufsteinerland as a backdrop. The star performs with the original Tiroler Echo.
The multi-talented Tyrolean Hansi Hinterseer is famous well beyond the borders of his home country for hits such as “Du hast mich heut noch nicht geküsst”, “Amore mio”, “Tiroler Berge”, “Sieben rote Rosen”, “Hände zum Himmel”, “Hey Baby”, “Komm nach Tirol Senorita”, “Viva Tirol”, “Lieb mich nochmal”, “Egal wohin Du gehst”, “Lebenslänglich mit Dir” and “Komm und tanz”. This is reflected in his 34 gold and 12 platinum awards as well as a double platinum award. For the past 18 years he has been accompanied around Europe by the unmistakable Tiroler Echo. Insiders in the popular scene love Tiroler Echo for their distinctive sound made up of Styrian harmonica, accordion, guitar and double bass.
