Explosives, Broken Glass, Rain?

This pole is from the Zinneke parade and was carried around by persons who appeared to be marshals.  The official website informs us that:

Zinneke is the name Brussels people give to the small Senne/Zenne river that circles Brussels, protecting it against flooding. Zinneke is also used to refer to a stray dog or mutt… some of which end up in the river. And so we get Zinneke: meaning one of multiple origin and symbol of the cosmopolitan and multicultural nature of Brussels.
