Is the February chill getting you down? Get your spirits up and look forward to warmer months by planning a trip to one of these incredible spring festivals around the world.

Las Fallas, Valencia, Spain

This festival is considered one of Europe’s most insane spring parties. The annual fireworks display and sculpture festival celebrates spring with massive puppets, later set alight in flames.

Songkran Water Festival, Thailand

This annual festival in Thailand is celebrated in the country as the traditional New Year’s Day. The Buddhist festival celebrates water in a ritual of washing away negativity from the year before. It is also a convenient and fun way to cool off, as April is the hottest month of the year in Thailand.

Holi, India

In northern India, Hindus celebrate the coming of spring by throwing vibrant colored powder at each other in the streets. It celebrates the season’s many hues and Hindu mythology, commemorating the victory of good over evil.

Spring Equinox, Yucatan, Mexico 

This ancient Mayan festival celebrates the Spring Equinox at Mayan temples. Visitors from around the globe gather to see the natural play of light that creates a shadow of a serpent climbing along the side of the pyramid of Chicén Itza.

Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, Washington 

Hundreds of thousands of visitors come to see the valley’s most colorful crop: acres and acres of brightly colored tulips line that line the hills. The area is incredibly scenic and a perfect destination to celebrate the coming of spring.
