Everybody knows about these greatÂ parties. We've all heard about them, they are ridiculously large, extremely wild and people from all over the world pack their bags to be there and to over-indulge yourself in all possible ways and to have the time of their lives. This is my bucket list for the parties I want to visit before I die. For now, I've seen two of these ten - Full Moon Party and Songkran when I was in Thailand last year. I haven't yet decided Which will be my next destination for this year.
La Tomatina is the biggest tomato fight in the world held each year since 1945 in Bunyol, Spain.Â On the last Wednesday in AugustÂ 30,000 people get together in the street and toss tomatoes at each other. Before they start, rockets filled with tomatoes are launched above the crowd, making it rain tomato juice.
Legend has it, that a group of young people from Japan was celebrating someone's birthday during the 80s and they had the biggest, wildest party ever on the sandy beach on Koh Pangan, under the light of full moon. They had such great time that they decided to gather for the next full moon and party again. And soon it turned into a tradition. Now, there are back packers from all over the world that come here to party.
This is THE Carnival. The biggest, wildest and most famous one in the whole world. Thousands of half-naked participants dance to the rhythms of samba in one of the most beautiful places in the world. The carnival lasts for almost a week and it is a ongoing party for the whole time. This party has the main priority on my bucket list. I can't wait to join that pulsing crowd.
Songkran is the Thai New Year. It takes place all over the country in mid-April and is literary the biggest water fight in the world. It is a spiritual holiday and aside from helping you cool down it is supposed to symbolize washing away your last year's sins. And the best way to do that is by committing some new ones.
If you're into beer, German sausages and women with big breasts in traditional Bavarian dresses, then the Oktoberfest is the place for you! Over 6 million people from all over the world come to Munich to enjoy the best beer in the world and join the street parades of people singing German songs followed by Oompha Bands.
Similar to the Thai holiday of Songrkan, Holi is a two day Hindu spring festival that occurs in northern India. The first night is marked by bonfires, and the second day is spent pleasuring your inner 2nd grader by splashing colored flour and water over everybody. Itâs a celebration about renewal.
This must be one of the craziest festivals in the world! Every year, tens of thousands of people come in Pamplona to literally run with bulls.Locals call the event The Festival of San Fermin. Thousands of people get chased by a herd of bulls while they run through a barricaded course. It is insanely dangerous and of course, many people get injured, but it just makes me wanna go and participate even harder!
People who were at these Greek island call it the the College fraternity version of Ibiza. There are three things to do on Ios, drink and party all night, hook-up and recover on the beach. Sounds like just the right amount of activity I plan for my holiday.
Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday" (in ethnic English tradition, Shrove Tuesday), referring to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season, which begins on Ash Wednesday.
