In fact, the US alone has some amazing parades and festivals for all to enjoy as we approach the end of the year.
We’ll give you a brief description of these awesome events below. So, when you’re preparing for your trip at the end of the year and aren’t sure where you should go, think about the events we’re about to tell you about and consider visiting these locations at the appropriate time. You’ll be glad you’ve witnessed these amazing and rare opportunities while they still exist.
Fantasy Fest in Key West, Florida
Since 1979, the locals in Key West, Florida decided to create a party that lasts for 10 days in an effort to bring visitors to the area during a gorgeous season when travel and tourism typically tends to slow down. This year in 2017, the annual Fantasy Fest in Key West will take place between October 21 and October 30, so if you’re looking for a fun, exciting, entertaining, and amazing adult experience, please look no further than this incredible event.
It’s truly a wild extravaganza and it’s an event that you’ll never forget for the rest of your life. If you enjoy partying, eating good food, drinking tasty alcohol, and more, then you’ll absolutely have a blast if you visit Key West during this time a year.
There are people raising hell and having a good time in costumes while they partake in many libations while singing, dancing, and ultimately having an amazing experience. Plus the food is out of this world awesome and you’re going to love every second of an experience that can’t be beat.
So do yourself a huge favor and visit Key West for Fantasy Fest from October 21 to the 30th in 2017 this year. You will not regret it if you love partying, drinking, letting loose, having a good time, and finally freeing yourself from adult responsibilities at least for a little while!
Village Halloween Parade
The Village Halloween Parade in New York City is an event that will stick with you for the rest of your life. If you love celebrating Halloween with lots of fun loving people, then you’re in for a treat because they shut down 6th Avenue along the parade route and all of the wonderful people in costumes get to show off their amazing creations in the city that never sleeps.
If you go to New York City on October 31 to become part of the Village Halloween Parade this year, just know that they aren’t going to let you march down 6th Avenue unless you’re wearing a costume. Plus, they have a theme every year – it hasn’t been announced yet as of the time of this writing – so you’ll want to possibly wear a costume according to the theme, so keep that in mind.
Festival of Lights
The Festival of Lights is held in Riverside, California every year. This year’s festival begins on November 25 and ends on January 6, 2018. Hosted by the Mission Inn Hotel & Spa, they will present thousands of lights as part of multiple events including a switch on ceremony, Santa Claus’s arrival, and horse carriage rides. If you’re looking for an exciting activity to entertain yourself during the winter, visiting the Festival of Lights in Riverside is certainly a good idea.
Please enjoy these three must visit events before the rest of 2017 completely passes you by.
