If you are looking for a quick getaway, consider travelling to a place that has a fun festival. Festivals are a great way to sample the food, culture, and fun of a new area. Here are some of our top picks for the month of November:
Dominican Republic Jazz Festival
Location: Dominican Republic
You may not realize it, but the Dominican Republic has a very well-known Jazz Festival. You can spend a weekend getting to know the island through jazz music. Beyond the festival, you’ll also enjoy local food, drinks, beaches, and watersports.
Festival of the Horned One
Location: Rocca Canterano, Italy
During the Festival of the Horned One, you’ll witness costumed actors recite satirical compositions about the ugly business of betrayals and bust-ups. During this festival, you’re likely to find a new fling in Rome, the world’s unofficial capital of romance. The bars are packed with good-looking single people.
Location: Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
During mid-November in George Town Harbour, the Pirate Festival is a time for music, dancing, costumes, and games! The festival begins with a mock invasion. Two replica 17th-century galleons, accompanied by other boats, swarm the rogues and carry out a “surprise” attack on George Town Harbour. Don’t worry though—it’s all fun and games. The “attack” is very controlled and is followed by food, dancing and fun.
Surin Elephant Round-up
Location: Surin, Thailand
During the third week in November, thousands of Thais and travellers stampede into Surin for the country’s biggest elephant show.
The elephants participate in a variety of different activities including soccer, sprinting, picking up objects, and a tug of war. The Surin Elephant Round-Up is certainly a site to see if you happen to be in Thailand!
Location: New York, New York
The fourth Thursday in November marks Thanksgiving for Americans. At this time, Americans show their appreciation for all the things that they are thankful for, including their families and friends.
Aside from gorging on turkey and snoozing in front of the TV, many Americans turn out for the Macy’s Day Parade, where celebrities, acrobats, and large balloons parade down the middle of New York.
