17 days of Bright lights,Gingerbread hearts, Beer, Pretzels, Midway rides and much more. Since 1035 Bremen has been celebrating "Freimarkt" one of the oldest fairs in Germany. Last night we bundled up and headed out for some fun, festive good times.
When you go to any festival in Germany you have to have the Gluehwein, it's hot mulled red wine. Just the trick to warm you up on a chilly night. Next you have to have a hot pretzel, the best in the world! Basically it's a night of sweets,meats and alcohol. Dinner consist of Beer and Bratwurst and dessert is something I call "little pillows of love", hot donut squares with powder sugar tossed over them. We didn't go on any rides tonight but walked around and watched the excitement and people around us. Being near the end of the festival it was wall to wall people, though crowded it's nice see the people of Bremen happy, smiling and enjoying the night.
Do you know Unknown Mami? She's awesome and she created a fun Sunday theme inviting you to get out and take pictures of your city to share with the rest of us.
