Big Easter bonfire this Saturday night

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to give you all a heads up about an event you might want to see.

Just as Germany is known for its Christmas Markets around that time of year, it also has a tradition of doing a big bonfire the night before Easter. This is usually the time for the villagers to get together and make a party and catch up with each other and burn off all the dead branches they collected over the winter. It's an impressive sight to see I am told. Of course there's a lot of drinking, dancing and wurst eating going on.

Berlin will be having at least one such bonfire over in Neuk├Âln at the Britzer Garten. Apparently things will start happening just after sundown.

I can't make an official Meetup for this as I will be running around that night, but if somebody would like to gather up a group and check out the bonfire feel free to make a Suggested Meetup for it and I'll make it official.

Here is a couple links for it:
