Carnival in Münster

This past weekend, we walked down to The Send, a carnival that takes place in the Schlosspark a few times each year.

So much neon fun!

The food was not dissimilar from a Christmas market, and the rides were almost entirely the same as at the Hannover Oktoberfest we went to in 2011. Our favorite part, besides marveling at the speed and size of the Ferris wheel and “swing you around til you puke” rides, was seeing the popularity of American (?) culture.

American hamburger alert!

One ride was flashing videos on a loop, which included a bald eagle, a sign saying “Fuck You” and a cartoon of George W. Bush going after the Statue of Liberty, Godzilla-style. There were also bags of popcorn being sold that had the emblem of an American flag with an eagle in front of it. Mmm, delicious freedom.
