Summertime in Berlin is full of street parades and festivals—too many to keep up with, really. Last year I saw the Fete de la Musique, CSD, F*ckParade and the Slutwalk. I’ll probably be around for most of those (and more) this summer. It’s just too hard to resist a good street festival!

Berlin’s annual Karneval der Kulturen (Carnival of Cultures) celebrates the cultural and ethnic diversity in Berlin. There’s a parade on one of the days of the festival, and a small area of the city is turned into a multicultural event area with stages, food stalls and shopping. (Most notably is the Jamaican chicken stand, says @smonicats.) If you’re interested in a bit more background about the Carnival of Cultures, check out this post from last year. Or view the event’s website in English.
