With the arrival of spring weather, I am reminded of summer travels. Sometimes, as was the case with my trip to Japan last summer, traveling offers a change to experience a different culture. The United States is such a melting pot that we can experience many cultures through festivals and never leave the country.
10Best Readers’ Choice Awards offers you the chance to vote for the best festival. Since I’ve never been to any of the twenty festivals nominated, and there was no Austen festival, I voted for the next best thing – the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. The Texas Renaissance Festival in Todd Mission was a close second, and the UFO Festival in (of course) Roswell, New Mexico, came in third. Photo courtesy of Texas Renaissance Festival
The UFO Festival had me at the use of the word “quirky” in their description. Dressing up for this one would be fun! Right up there with Comic-Con International in San Diego!
