CARNIVAL OF CULTURES, BERLIN – ELLEN KUNTZ {EVENTS/PHOTOGRAPHY}


  CofC-10

Every year Berlin celebrates the city’s cultural diversity with the Karneval der Kulturen or Carnival of Cultures in English. The Carnival takes place in early summer around Pentecost. A four-day street festival at Blücherplatz leads up to the main event, an eight and half hour long street parade filled with music and dance. I spent the month of May living in Berlin, and I attended the Carnival. The Carnival is meant to be experienced. In doing so words will never be able to sum up the experience of Carnival of Cultures. As a parade attendee it’s encouraged to just join a float, and dance the entire parade route. I joined four different floats, and danced in the hot Berlin air with several hundred people. The Carnival is the essence of what I thought Berlin was; an accepting, diverse community that values living life with the most enjoyment possible.
