  4. 4. Ati-Atihan Festival Kalibo, Aklan, Philippines (Jan 10 to Jan 19) History- Ati-Atihan is a story of the friendship between the Ati tribe and the Malay tribe who came to live in Kalibo in Aklan where the Ati tribe was settled. They started the song and dance ritual to express their gratitude for each other. Spanish missionaries gradually added a Christian meaning and made it a celebration in honor of the Santo Niño (Infant Jesus). Brand Consulting | Communication |Technology | Media www.bludacnis.com
  5. 5. Venice Carnival Venice, Italy (February 15-March 4) HistoryCarnival of Venice started after the victory of the “Repubblica della Serenissima“ against the Patriarch of Aquileia, Ulrico in the year 1162. In honour of this victory, people started to dance and make reunions in San Marco Square. The Carnival starts around two weeks before Ash Wednesday and ends on Shrove Tuesday (Fat Tuesday or Martedì Grasso), the day before Ash Wednesday.

  6. 6. Rio Carnival Rio de Janerio, Brazil (Feb 28-March 4) HistoryThe Carnival in Rio has a long rich history dating back to the early 1700's. It is a four day celebration before lent when one is supposed to give up pleasures, such as resisting the temptation to consume meat. The Carnival in Rio officially starts on the Saturday before lent and ends on the Tuesday, or Fat Tuesday, before Ash Wednesday. Brand Consulting | Communication |Technology | Media www.bludacnis.com
  7. 7. Songkran Festival Bangkok, Thailand (April 13-April 15) HistoryThe roots of this festival are spiritual, with water dousing representing a purification ritual to wash away evil spirits in anticipation of the Thai New Year. But now it has now become an enormous countrywide water fight. Thais spend three brutally hot days soaking their fellow citizens and everyone else in what amounts to the biggest party of the year. Brand Consulting | Communication |Technology | Media www.bludacnis.com
  8. 8. Thrissur Pooram Kerala, India (May 8-May 10) HistoryThrissur pooram is a 200 year old festival. Earlier “Arattupuzha pooram”, was the biggest temple festival of Kerala. All the temples participating in Thrissur pooram and Kuttanellore pooram were the regular participants of ”Arattupuzha pooram”. Once these temples got delayed for the festival due to heavy rain and were denied entry to attend it. So Raja Rama Varma created this festival in 1798 and invited temples in this Kerala region to the main temple in Thrissur to pay respects to Shiva, the presiding deity.

  9. 9. Haro Wine Festival Haro, La Rioja, Spain(June 29) HistoryHaro Wine festival is a Spanish fiesta which traces its history to a border dispute between Haro and its neighbours in Miranda de Ebro. The king stepped in and ordered Haro to mark its border with crimson banners every Saint Peter’s Day and the first Sunday of each September. The observation of Saint Peter's Day broke down into a celebration some 400 years later, into a joyous wine sharing turned into a purple shower.

  10. 10. Darwin Beer Can Regatta Darwin, Australia (July 6) HistoryThe first Beer Can Regatta started innocently as the brainchild of Lutz Frankenfeld and Paul Rice-Chapman. At that time, Paul had a deal with Swan Breweries to stage a festival based on water activities, and was investigating the idea of building rafts out of empty beer cans. Lutz took this idea a step further and added an outboard motor to the vessel, and things grew from there. Brand Consulting | Communication |Technology | Media www.bludacnis.com
  11. 11. La Tomatina Bunol, Valencia, Spain (August 27) HistoryOne popular theory is that disgruntled townspeople attacked city councilmen with tomatoes during a town celebration. Whatever happened to begin the tradition, it was enjoyed so much that it was repeated the next year, and the year after that, and so on. The holiday was banned during the Spanish State period under Francisco Franco for having no religious significance, but returned in the 1970s after his demise. Brand Consulting | Communication |Technology | Media www.bludacnis.com
  12. 12. Regata Storica Venice(September 7) HistoryA historical procession commemorates the welcome given to Caterina Cornaro, wife of the King of Cyprus, in 1489 after she renounced her throne in favour of Venice. It is a procession of 16th century style boats, with the famous Bucintoro, the boat representing the Serenissima, at its head. Then comes the competition. Brand Consulting | Communication |Technology | Media www.bludacnis.com
  13. 13. The village Halloween Parade New York (October 31) HistoryThe Village Halloween Parade was founded in 1974 by Ralph Lee, a puppeteer. In 1974, Ralph was working with the Theater for the New City and the performers decided to start a Halloween parade as a means of celebrating Halloween via a mile long trek consisting of giant puppets, masked performers and musicians-a flamboyant live-action public theater performance that made the streets its stage. Brand Consulting | Communication |Technology | Media www.bludacnis.com
  14. 14. Loy krathong festival Sukhothai, Thailand (Nov 5 to Nov 7) HistoryLoy Krathong takes place on the full moon evening in November. It is an evening when Thais pay respect to the goddess of the waters by floating candlelit offerings on any and all waterways around the kingdom. People usually make a wish at the same time and some people believe that if the candle remains burning until the krathong is out of sight then their wish will come true. Brand Consulting | Communication |Technology | Media www.bludacnis.com
  15. 15. Hogmanay Edinburgh, Scotland (December 31) HistoryFrom December 31st through January 1st, tradition sends many Scots to clean their houses and settle debts, all in the name of getting a fresh start. Revelers sing New Year’s song-poem Auld Lang Syne with arms linked. When night falls, however, the celebration is in full swing with parades, performances and spectacular fireworks display all with a Scottish twist.
