13 May Festivals and Events Around the World

As nice weather returns, the world has a great selection of festivals and events in the month of May. There are plenty of May, music, film, flower, and barbecue festivals, and then there are a few that are totally offbeat and worth checking out. See 13 of them a list I prepared for mental_floss

Some of these entries were rendered nonsensical in the editing process. St. Sara is not named Mary; she was the servant of the Three Marys, two of which are involved in the PĂ©lerinage des Gitans. The name of the festival translates to Pilgrimage of the Gypsies. “Gitans” is French for Roma, or gypsies. There are no flower or barbecue festivals in the list; the original intro made clear that these are something else.
