About 300 inhabitants of Duindorp, a fishing neighborhood, build the largest New Year’s Eve bonfire Worlwide on the beach on January 11, 2018 in The Hague, the Netherlands. A hundred thousand wooden pallets collected during the year and stored in secret locations were lifted and piled up to reach a final high of 29.7 meters. Duindorp holds the world record with a bonfire of 9,700 cubic meters. The New Year’s Eve bonfire of Duindorp was relocated on the beach in the nineties to restore peace in the neighborhood as violent brawls often erupted.
