Photo Story: Main Festival in Germany ends
People enjoy the show as fireworks illuminate the sky to celebrate the end of the Main Festival or Mainfest in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
The Mainfest was originally a festival for fishermen and boatmen and was supposedly derived from the consecration of the Dreikönigskirche (Church of the Three Kings) of 23 July 1340. The purpose of this festival was to give thanks and pay homage to “Their river and its bounties”.
