From the BBC:

Germans have been throwing an enormous party on one of the busiest stretches of the country’s famous autobahn (motorway) network.

As many as three million people turned up for a giant banquet at picnic tables along 60km (40 miles) of motorway between Duisburg and Dortmund. The Still-Life event was meant to celebrate the Ruhr region.

Party organisers said they had given away 20,000 tables to allow people to eat, drink, dance and perform plays into Sunday evening.

At midday German media reported that the A40 temporarily had to be closed to cyclists due to traffic jams and overcrowding.
