  • The Nabada - Abiyoyo
    to pull out on boats they have taken care to build in the preceding months On each of these vessels that host noisy parties an event of city life from the previous year which is praised or insulted by people is portrayed with humor The people on the shore cheer the parade boats choosing the most beautiful original and sarcastic one which will then be rewarded To contribute to the general merriment boats carry orchestras and bands and an endless swarm of inflatable boats fins kayaks and swimmers The parade on the water closes with the ship of the ordinary an old ship model which hosts the leading men of the city ahead with the mayor whose main job is to make signs and greetings to the people on the banks of the Danube The party goes from kiosks and small restaurants on the lawns of Friedrichsau and throughout the city until late at night On the Monday of the Oath other traditional festivals take place such as the play off between fishermen a race on the Danube the Bindertanz harvest dance and the Concert of the Oath at the Cathedral Worth mentioning is also the festival of lights Lichterserenade held two days earlier By nightfall about 45 000 candles lit red and yellow are perched on the waters of the Danube At first they move slowly then dragged by the current towards the east forming long snakes that seem to dance before ending up on the shores Every four years the program culminates with the famous festival of Fischerstechen a tournament on the water which has its roots in a custom from the fifteenth century Ulm Ulm located along the banks of the Danube in Baden Württermberg is known especially for being the birthplace of Albert Einstein in 1879
