Most Amazing Festivals in the World

We humans work hard and when we play, we celebrate. The array and variety of amazing world festivals is an example of how lavishly we find ways to have fun, to toast who we are as individuals with favourite pastimes (body painting, for instance), as groups (such as those who enjoy ballooning) or as a culture, like those of German descent joining together for Oktoberfest.
World Festivals draw together not just those from the areas where the festival is staged, but like-minded souls from across the world. If you’re planning to go to New Mexico, set your trip during the dates of the Albuquerque International Balloon Festival; make the vacation more than just visiting friends and family, or doing typically touristy things. An amazing world festival can add a memorable experience to your trip.
Or build your entire holiday around a festival that especially appeals to you. Go to Mardi Gras and then spend a while longer in New Orleans. The same would apply to a holiday in Venice, planned and executed around Carnival, or one structured around Carnival in Rio di Janeiro.
Pick an amazing world festival that tickles your fancy, aligns with your ethnicity, or just sounds like a blast and make that the launching pad for an awesome adventure away.
