Festivals

Festivals are a way to become part of a region’s community. Whether religious or seasonal, somber or silly, formal or casual, festivals mark an occasion that has some type of meaning for the people who honor it. Festivals are a window into the shared traditions, history, and values celebrated by a given culture and often feature multi-faceted and colorful costumes, music, dancing, pageantry, and foods.
