Las Fallas, Spain
Mid-March each year sees hundreds of huge papier-mâché sculptures (fallas) erected and placed throughout Valencia. Each sculpture is unique in design, size, and shape, and tourists gawk at them all while accompanied by street parties, cooking competitions, open-air concerts, bullfights, and parades. The highlight of the celebrations takes place each night with grandiose fireworks displays and the sculptures being burned to the ground on the last night, as a finale.
What could easily be considered Oktoberfest’s “little brother”, if you’re thirsty for some beer in mid- to late March, head to Munich for a fortnight of stein-swilling celebration. A 300-year Bavarian tradition, Starkbierzeit is the perfect excuse to engage in 2 weeks of revelry, lagers, and the consumption of great tasting beer. Head to the nearest kegfest and you surely won’t be disappointed in what’s on tap.
St. Patrick’s Festival, Ireland
Green. Beer. Happy. Those are the three most important ingredients to a proper celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. And nowhere in the world is the revelry more authentic than in the heart of Dublin, Ireland. To be sure, the famous holiday is celebrated throughout the emerald isle, but the Emerald Isle’s Patron Saint’s presence is felt most in the country’s capital. So grab your shillelagh and get happy this St. Patrick’s Day.
