Dippemess aka Local Fair

This past Friday we walked over to the local fair to see just how Germany does these things. To our surprise it was very similar to American fairs, but we did notice a few differences:

1.) The smells were very different, but also very enjoyable. In the States you imagine giant Turkey legs, corn on the cob, and popcorn. Well here the smells were more brats and awesome roasted nuts. One thing I did learn recently that all popcorn in Germany is sweet not salty.

2.) They had a huge beer tent with a live band. Not that a band isnt common it is more the beer tent. A good way for adults to have a good time while the kiddos are playing games.

3.) I know this is Europe but usually fairs are a kid friendly atmosphere and while all of this was true there was an unusual amount of boobies and butts at the fair. All the stands had airbrush artwork on them and 9 out of 10 had a woman with her goods hanging out.

Exhibit A and this was the most G rated one we could find

4.) They had a lot of vendors that were selling stuff like household items. It was a little strange to see stands selling clothes, pottery, mops, coffee mugs, etc. But we did enjoy browsing through them.

Here are some pictures from the night.

Your typical ferris wheel

A fast speeding ride that would have made me throw up.

This ride just seemed crazy. Lots of spinning.

Enjoying a sour rope, but not quite the same as we are used to, not as sweet

I just thought this was funny, a bar table and stools with legs.

The haunted house ride.

It was a fun night and we love just getting out and being locals here.
