Top 5 Summer Festivals: These festivals can lay your mind to rest if you feel like you've missed out for not being able to attend Mardi Gras this year. Attending summer festivals not only gives a traveller the best of beats, but the best a destination's culture can afford.

With tons of people attending these summer festivals, host of colors for your eyes to feast on and myriad of musical options, attending any one of these will suffice for a whole summer's vacation.  

Top 1: St. Patty's Day, Savannah 

Though Dublin is the usual place which comes to mind when St. Patrick's Day festivities are mentioned, there is another place for celebrating St. Patrick's Day.

Another option is heading down to Savannah to celebrate with 300,000 other revelers in the city. Parties on River Street start every March 14th, but St. Patrick's Day is celebrated on the 17th. If your favourite color is green, then you're going to love seeing the city's famous fountains dyed green during this summer festival. 

Top 2: Bay to Breakers, San Francisco

Amongst the things San Francisco is famous for include the Pride Paradesourdough bread, and the Bay to Breakers. Many may not be familiar with this revelry set for the 18th of May, but this is considered San Francisco's biggest party, and surprisingly, it has been around since 1912.

Attendees will be required to run about 7 miles. Though running this far in this summer festival may not sound so enticing, the Bay to Breakers' 'costumed participants party ' before, during, and after the race are certainly a sight to behold.

Top 3: Electric Forest Festival, Michigan

If you're in the mood for EDM, insane lights, and neon dance offs, then the well-lit forest of the Electric Forest Festival in Rothbury, Michigan is for you. The celebration occurs yearly from June 26th to 29th. This summer festival has very convenient price packages and an insanely cool lineup, making it great for budget-conscious revelers who want some unique fun.

 

Top 4: Burning Man, Black Rock Desert

The Burning Man festival is famous for revelers looking to bring art and installation to the Black Rock desert. This amazing summer festival begins on August 24th. Because of the high-popularity of this festival, tickets sold out in just 45 minutes. If you're lucky though, you can still fight for one of the 1,000 tickets  sold at the end of July.

 

Top 5: The Carolina Cup, South Carolina

Happening in Camden, South Carolina on March 29th of every year is the remarkable party, The Carolina Cup. It has been dubbed the "rite of spring", famous among Southern sororities and fraternities, whose members make sure they attend and generally reach up to 65,000 people.

These Top 5 Summer Festivals will certainly make you feel at ease for not having been able to go to Mardi Gras this year.
