First Place: "Krampus Sighting"
Matthew Hinton | The annual Algiers Bonfire featured a sculpture based on a traditional German Christmas Pyramid Carousel decoration powered by a windmill on top with spinning reindeer and stars at the Algiers Ferry Landing along the West Bank of the Mississippi River in New Orleans, Saturday, Dec. 7, 2019. The sculpture was designed by NOLA Burners including artist Eric Arvidson and Brennan Steele. The CBD (Central Business District not that other CBD stuff) and the French Quarter including St. Louis Cathedral could be seen across the river on the East Bank. A horned devil or possibly Krampus was sighted admiring the flames along with a lady with reindeer antlers. The river was only at 9 feet during the bonfire, which is nearly half the height it was at in May 2019 when the river crested to 17.25 feet and Flood Stage. When the river was at or near flood stage all this landing area behind the river levee was completely submerged including some barricades used for the bonfire. Bonfire traditions along the river around Christmas time are meant to lead Santa Claus or Papa Noel to homes along the river. The largest bonfires occur on Christmas Eve in St. James Parish along the river levee in the towns of Gramercy, Paulina, and Lutcher. Copyright: Matthew Hinton / Very Local New Orleans
