What Festivals in US are celebrated with fun and gaiety?
Each country has a culture to talk about. They have history that the current generation has to know about to understand where they came from. The festivals that a country celebrates also speak volumes about it.
The US has its set of favorite festivals. The basic idea behind organizing festivals or celebrating them is to have some fun and good time. On other days everyone is busy following their schedule and they have no time to spend with family doing things that makes them forget stress.
Festivals bring together families who live in separate homes. Like during Christmas everyone from a household gets together with the elders and the younger ones to celebrate. The family also eats together during Thanksgiving.
There is a list of festivals that America celebrates but not every city celebrates all the festivals. Some are region-specific. Here’s a list that you may find handy.
It is now up to you to find out which one of these you can attend. Some of them may make more sense to you depending on your personal interest and liking. Some are interested in music. There are those who are willing to walk the extra mile for anything that has to do with food. If you are interested in festivals that are not inherently American but are celebrated by those who have moved to the US and made it their home, you are most welcome since you are likely to find one that is celebrated by your people back home.
If you can’t find yours, perhaps we have missed out. Since they are so many, you will have plenty of options. The only thing about this list is that these aren’t the regular ones that America celebrates. Fourth of July isn’t a festival but people take time out to celebrate their independence. They go out with families to enjoy the fireworks. When talking of families celebrating festivals, we want to mention that each family may have a ritual that they follow.
