Festivals and Events in United States Of America

Its quite likely that you won't find yourself far from the festive fanfare at America that has a large number of fairly good events dotting its calendar. Skies lit by fireworks, stages set by concerts, streets lost in processions and crowds bursting with joy- its all here at the most celebrated events of United States. A few of these are:-

Super Bowl Sunday is a big day for America's football buffs. The annual event is slated for the first Sunday of every February and is flagged off by a string of celebrity performances. Held across quite a few stadiums, the Super Bowl is also known as American television's most watched event.

President's Day is celebrated on the third Monday of February. Also dubbed as Washington's Birthday, the event honours two of America's greatest leaders- Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. While public institutions remain closed through the day, malls and supermarkets organize discount sprees to woo customers in the wake of celebrations.

Independence Day or the Fourth of July is America's time to reconcile with the sentiment of patriotism. It is a day that observes the nation's liberation from the rule of British colonizers. Needless to say, the event is marked by a public holiday and people are seen unwinding at beach trips with their families. Hang around the cities and get chatty with the locals. Or participate in a parade and witness a spectacular fireworks show.

Thanksgiving is not really different from what you see of it in America sitcoms. Celebrated throughout the country on the fourth Thursday of November, the occasion is a four day vacation for college, schools and offices. It is indeed a great time for friends and families in America to get together for some delicious servings of roast turkey and helpings of scrumptious desserts. Try and make a few friends during your time in America and you may just get invited for a mouth-watering treat.
