Vogel Gryff, or the festival of the Griffin, is the biggest occasion of the year in Kleinbasel. It opens with the Savage's boating venture down the Rhine. The pontoon completes drummers thumping the "Rhy Ab" walk, and guns shooting their salute. At the waterway's bank, the savage is gotten by Vogel Gryff and Leu the griffin and the lion individually, and together they continue through Kleinbasel, moving and engaging hordes of observers from the town and the encompassing region. The move moves are gone down through the ages of griffins, lions and savages without being recorded in composing. Interestingly, the customary drumming walk can be perused from its sheet music, and is played in the very same path quite a long time. After carnival,Vogel Gryff is the biggest occasion in the city of Basel and is notable over a considerably more extensive area.
Wilder Mann the savage man, Leu the lion and Vogel Gryff the griffin are customary images or representative figures of three Kleinbasel social orders. In prior days, they filled military and political needs.

The images and in addition the parades - which used to happen unexpectedly on ious days - go back to the 16th century. Since 1841, when the social orders moved their base camp to a similar building, the three celebrate together on the day apportioned to the general public managing that year. Festivities proceed with a merry lunch for all individuals from the social orders. Toward the evening and night, the emblematic figures continue moving in the bouleds of Kleinbasel.
