Nabada

The Nabada is the annual water festival on the Danube in Ulm. It happens on Schwörmontag (oath Monday), when, basically, the mayor swears loyalty to the citizens. Anyone who has a raft or something that floats, or not, can be in it.

Nabada (rhymes with Lambada) is Swabian for "Hinunterbaden", by the way, which means "bathing down(stream)".
