Fireworks are seen during the public show for the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall on Sunday at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.

Police and organizers say more than 100,000 people took part in an open-air party celebrating the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Despite the cold and damp, crowds flocked to Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate late Saturday for music and fireworks.

The boulevard leading up to the Brandenburg Gate was covered with a giant rainbow-colored net made of 100,000 streamers, many with messages of love and peace, created by US artist Patrick Shearn.

Elsewhere in the city, images and video of the events around the November 9, 1989 fall of the wall were projected onto buildings.
