We’re not the only ones excited about spring; the whole world is. Bookmark these global fests and add them to your post-Holi travel list ...
Songkran Festival, Thailand
Think of a fun water festival minus the annoying chemical colours now synonymous with Holi celebrations.
Bulbflower parade, Netherlands
South Holland’s famous parade screams spring with a flower show, band marches and more.
Battle of the Oranges, Italy
Move over, Tomatina, Ivrea’s Battle of Oranges is just as fun and less stinky. Registered members participate in the biggest food fight of the region and emerge spring ready after the day-long event.
The Bloom Of Cherry Blossoms, Japan
Japan’s spring celebrations last the longest, depending on the blooming of cherry blossoms. Locals enjoy the season with picnic lunches and outdoor celebrations under the pink bloomy canopy.
Las Fallas, Spain
From water to fire, Spain’s spring festival involves a brilliant display of firecrackers, larger-than-life puppets and extravagant parades.
