The event pits Kreuzberg district residents againts those of Friedrichshain for control of the Oberbaumbruecke (Oberbaum Bridge), and the two sides pelt each other with rotten vegetables, pet food, ketchup, chicken drumsticks, flour, water guns and styrofoam bats until one side has pushed the other from the bridge. Friedrichshain won the war, in revenge for Kreuzberg's victory the previous year.
