The OpenStreetMap 8th Anniversary Birthday party took place on Saturday, 18 August 2012 to celebrate the "birthday" of the project. We partied in cities all around the world!


Cake for the London celebrations

We were at the Doggets Coat & Badge pub on the South Bank (map) and it was super hot weather in London so we were enjoying the beergarden at the back. Harry made a cake with OSM Logo icing decorations which seemed to melt a little bit in the heat.
