Also, the event takes place in a beautiful place: along the beach of Pinarella di Cervia, a popular summer destination in Italy with very warm weather and gentle onshore breezes, making it ideal for kiting.

Yi Peng Lantern Festival, Chiang Mai, Thailand
Also known as the Festival of Lights, Yi Peng is among the most iconic and photogenic festivals in the world. Unique to Northern Thailand, Yi Peng is a festival in celebration of the last full moon of the Thai lunar calendar (usually falling in November). It also marks the passing of the monsoon season, making way for the
coolest season of the year to begin. Though multiple cities in the northern region of Thailand celebrate this festival, Chiang Mai is undoubtedly the center of the action. Before the festival begins, the city is adorned with flower wreathes and decorations, especially in its many Buddhist temples. Attending the Festival of Lights
is exactly as ethereal as it sounds. After the sun sets, you will see thousands of paper lanterns float away into the night sky. During the festival, all of Chiang Mai smells of fragrant incense.

Junkanoo, Nassau, Bahamas
Winter’s wildest party can be found in the Bahamian capital city of Nassau on December 26th and January 1st. The Junkanoo Festival is a huge street celebration that’s half carnival and half masquerade ball. Beginning at around 2 a.m., elaborately-costumed dancers and lavishly decorated floats begin to parade down Nassau’s streets to the beat of goombay drums. Many of the people who participate in the parade work on their costumes all year long. Those judged to have the most extravagant costumes have their handiwork displayed in the Junkanoo Expo Museum.
