The most beautiful festivals in the world
I have a special attitude towards the holidays, for which you need special training: costumes, decorations, thematic attributes, accessories, music and dance programs. Inspired by the premiere of the cartoon “Rio 2”, I decided to recall the most beautiful holidays of the world, namely: the festivals from year to year collected a record number of tourists and encouraging guests a breathtaking spectacle.

The end of February-beginning of March.
Holi, or the Festival of colors begins on the full moon day and lasts for three days. For Hindus this festival is the main thing – theatrical battle between men, jumping through fire, and gatherings with family. But the guests of the festival are looking forward to the third day – the climax of the festival when adults and children have fun from the heart, thrown into the air colored powder or paint them with each other.
Colored powders made from herbs. Besides the fact that they add brilliance to the holiday, they also help fight springtime viruses.

The last week in August.

Chiang Mai, Thailand
Festival of flowers
The first Friday of February.
No wonder Chiang Mai called “the rose of the North”! For centuries, local residents were engaged in horticulture and floriculture, and once a year – in the spring when everything is blooming, – showed the ability to another. Here was born and fabulously beautiful flower Festival. At this time there an abundance of plants, a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. Girls sew for this holiday luxurious costumes, be sure to decorate them with exotic plants, and at the end of the festival the most beautiful of them becomes the Queen of flowers.
In Thailand bloom more than 3000 species of orchids, one third of them can be seen at the festival. And, you can admire the damask rose – a special kind found in Chiang Mai, as well as white and yellow chrysanthemums.
Fire symbolizes purification, and the flight of the flashlight – striving for the highest, so it is believed that together with lanterns in the sky fly all the troubles, problems and worries, leaving only light and good feelings. The festival sky lanterns (Loy Krathong) – this is a fantastic event, when the sky lights up with thousands of little lights.
Loy Krathong – one of the most popular in Thailand, holidays, celebrated on the thirteenth century.
