I need to look into some of those music events. The jazz and rock festivals look very interesting.


Slow food festival I like to go to and try different foods.

Hot air balloon festival is starting now. It’s a huge government expense and pretty popular haha.

I’m very interested in this. Here’s some basic information for the event.

Ah good one, will add that and some others later

I went last year, it was good

I can make it a Wiki post, which will let anyone edit it.
