"One of the best events is Las Alumbrados -- a must-see for anyone lucky enough to find themselves in Medellin over the festive period. The breathtaking Christmas lights are a real highlight and run along the east side of the Rio Medellin. The sheer quantity, size and vibrancy of the lights is simply astonishing."

The holiday season in Medellin, Colombia is a special time of year when residents and tourists come together and enjoy the splendors of the holiday lights. The light displays deck the city’s roads, natural features, and parks. The premier sites to witness the lights can be found on Avenue la Playa and the Medellin River.
YES - lillypads made out of Christmas lights - not sure what it has to do with Christmas, but its on a river, so it makes sense.
