Abstract:

When you're travelling, there's nothing like coming across a lively, local festival. This video installment of Globe Trekker's Great Festivals series looks back at some of the best ones the Globe Trekker explorers have stumbled upon. Many of the world's great festivals coincide with the changing of the seasons since ancient cultures set their clocks to the calendar's quarters. Justine Shapiro visits Taiwan to catch the 15-day celebration for Chinese New Year, which coincides with the lunar new year, and Zay Harding goes New Zealand, home of many major festivals on the first day of spring, the famous Sheep Shearing Contest, and the Strange Foods festival.
