Summer is a time of year that we love to celebrate. We celebrate by having a barbecue with our friends, we celebrate birthdays out and about, and we celebrate national holidays by having street parties and putting on fairs as a community.
Summer truly is a time for getting outside and celebrating with a class of vintage champagne from Oddbins, and there are even more things to celebrate than you might have thought! We have a hunger inside of us to travel and see as many awesome locations as we can. In the process of researching new locations and exciting happenings, we came across these summer festivals.
In Albuquerque New Mexico there is an annual balloon fiesta every October. It is a nine-day long event and houses over 500 hot air balloons. There are night and day glow shows and tons of family friends activities. We recently went to the Balloon Fiesta Museum, watch our youtube video about it by clicking here(skip to 6:30).
White Nights Festival
The white nights festivals happen each year around May and June, and it is something which is seen in northern cities as a phenomenon where the sun doesn’t fall below the horizon. The cities don’t go completely dark for a period of time and during this time, festivities and parties are held to celebrate the light and sunshine. It’s a wonderful sight and a rather surreal one which you can enjoy watching this year in a city such as St. Petersburg.
If you love music, you can travel to Serbia for the EXIT Festival and enjoy a range of different genres which are all celebrated during this time. This music festival is one of the biggest and best in the world and it features music a from pop, rock, alternative, dance and more all under one space. You will be able to celebrate in style with this festival as you listen to incredible music on the banks of the Danube.
