Theme: 'My Favourite Festival'

Join our annual writing competition on Kids-World-Travel-Guide.com! Write about your favourite festival or celebration and let all know what makes this event so special!  

Be creative! You can write about (almost;-) anything and everything! And keep it positive, tell us about the things you wish to others to know about your festival and the country where one can experience this event. For example you could write about:

  • your favourite places to visit during the festival: tell us about the smells, sounds and your experiences, and why you enjoy visiting theses places 
  • your favorite 'secret' place to explore: your favourite  family traditions during the festival, any fun facts or personal experiences 
  • your favourite tradition: explain more about the people and cultures who celebrate this event for example, what is the traditional dress code for the festival or which customs do the people follow who take part in the events?
  • your favourite festival food: what do you enjoy to taste, eat or drink, where to eat it, maybe you want to share a special recipe as well?
  • ... so much more. Try to recreate the special atmosphere or give us a glimpse into your favourite festival tradition
  • It's your call: Be creative!
