The most historically significant floats, such as the "Apple Crown" wagon from Marling, the "Kundschafter" wagon and the wagon with the coat of arms of the city of Merano will be placed on the various city squares.
The floats with the apple crown and the "Kundschafter"
The Marlinger wagon with the apple crown is the oldest of all the floats at the Grape Festival, as it was first built in 1949. Its dimensions are remarkable: It is over five metres long, 2.20 metres wide and weighs 2.3 tonnes (apples account for over 500 kilos of this).
With its 300 kilograms of grapes, the giant grape wagon "Kundschafter" from Algund is also one of the most important floats of the parade. The cart weighs about half a ton, is 4.50 metres high and 1.60 metres wide. The giant grape itself is one and a half metres high. The float was first decorated in this form in 1951.
