Festivals are a time for people to come together and celebrate their community. They’re also a time for people to express themselves through art, music, comedy or dance. This can be anything from a parade through the town to a music festival where revellers will camp out in tents to see their favourite singers and bands.

Festivals are popular because they allow people to connect with each other in a way they might not normally do. The festival environment encourages people to talk to strangers, make new friends and forget about the worries of everyday life.
