Was hoping to make it, but I've just landed from Mexico and won't be able to get there in time. Have a great meet-up!
I am so sorry to miss this month's Travel Meet-Up. I will be leading a workshop about volunteering while you travel. http://bit.ly/1kp0OJd Hope to make next month!

Since even narrowing it down to festivals I have way more stuff than I could ever show, I’ll open it up for votes on others to include if anyone has anything they’ve wanted to see or learn more about. Here are a few more options from some of the festivals I went to that were particularly interesting and photogenic:
