I have to admit – I’m a sucker for international festivals and events. The real Oktoberfest in Munich was amazing, as was the Hong Kong Sevens. But, there are great events and festivals in the USA as well. Events like Seafair in Seattle, which I attended last weekend — and you even get to see pirates such as those below roaming the streets.
Suffice to say, if you’re planning a trip to Seattle next year – try to time it with Seafair, particularly if you can score a spot on a boat for the “real” party.
