This is a general thread on festivals so anything about festivals may be posted. You can post pictures with caption about the festival (where, when, what,how, why). You may also discuss your experiences on festivals. Make or break festivals? Success and Failures in festivals? Benefits of that festival?.
...


Festivals, of many types, serve to meet specific needs, as well as to provide entertainment. These times of celebration offer a sense of belonging for religious, social, or geographical groups. Modern festivals that focus on cultural or ethnic topics seek to inform members of their traditions. In past times, festivals were times when the elderly shared stories and transferred certain knowledge to the next generation. Historic feasts often provided a means for unity among families and for people to find mates. Select anniversaries have annual festivals to commemorate previous significant occurrences.

There's a Japanese festival coming up in August where you honor your elders and those who have passed away. You send a floating paper lantern down a pond, river, or lake to honor them. I think it might be a romantic thing to do with my g/f. Not the dead people part. But watching all the lanterns at night at a local Japanese Garden.

We would have had a certain awesome riot/festival if our local sports team would've won a certain final competition.
