There and Back Again: PalmenGarten

Yesterday evening I was in the PalmenGarten for the Rosen 2016 event, which is a large botanical garden within the heart of Frankfurt. The highlight of the event was to showcase the roses inside the garden and then enjoy the firework show at 10:45 pm. The facility was enormous and housed hundreds of plants and flowers from all over the world. It was great to see families, friends, and couples all enjoy a peaceful evening outside. The event had music, food, DJs, and restaurants to accommodate all who came. A unique addition to the event, was that people were allowed to bring in small candles and light them. I’ve never seen this done before so it was quite interesting to observe. The candles were laid out in such away to resemble shapes, cartoons, landmarks, and animals, etc.
