Rhein in Flammen / The Rhine on Fire

24 Festive Tasks: Door 10 – Bon Om Touk, Task 2:

 If you’ve ever attended a procession or an event involving festively decked out boats, post a picture and tell us about it.

I’ve posted about this before: “Rhein in Flammen” (“The Rhine on Fire”, or “The Rhine up in Flames”) is an annual event linking the towns along the Rhine, all the way from Koblenz to Bonn, by a pleasure boat corso and a chain of fireworks.   The whole thing gets kicked off in Koblenz as soon as night has fallen, and finishes in Bonn with the hugest firework of all at some point after 11:00pm.  I haven’t taken photos of this in ages, but here are some photos of this year’s event taken by other people:
