Berlin Love Parade

Germany: Berlin Love Parade
The Love Parade is the greatest global dance event in Berlin. It was created, 4 months before the demolition of the Berlin Wall, in 1989 by the German DJ Dr Motte as a demonstration for peace, love and tolerance between different nations. This parade began with one truck and 150 people; every year this number was increasing until 40 trucks and hundred of thousand people who are dancing through Berlin streets. In fact, in 1996 the parade was so large that the organizers had to move it and change the original route. Currently the new route is from the Ku'damm shopping avenue to the Tiergarten Park where the Brandenburg Gate is.
