How to Celebrate Festivals the Right Way

Is there a proper way to celebrate festivals? Well, yes there is! Otherwise, this article wouldn’t exist! Here are the things you must keep in mind to celebrate festivals better:

Research about it

Just like what you do before purchasing a pipe threading machine, you also have to research about the festival. What’s the history behind the celebration? Some of us may not even know the reason why a festival is being held. But seriously, you need to understand why that festival exists. Why? Because you’ll enjoy and appreciate a celebration even more if you know the right information. Besides, you wouldn’t want to be among the ignorant people who have no idea, would you? Come prepared. At least if someone asks you about the festival, say a foreigner or a child, you’ll know what to answer. Plus, festivals are a part of our culture, so it’s not only about treating the festival essential but also about seeing the significance of our culture. Don’t be a loser; know what you should know about the festival!

Celebrate with your loved ones

Cut as if those were pipes that needed cutting—no matter how hard they are, there will still be a tool that could split them. It’s best to celebrate with people you adore because festivals are not only for entertainment but also a showcase of love and respect for people. You’ll also be able to have more fun if there’s no hatred in your heart and if you have a clear mind. Festivals deserve your undivided attention because they don’t always come around. They’re usually conducted once a year, so be sure to enjoy them with a joyful heart.

Socialize

Festivals are also excellent events for meeting new people and finding new friends. Festivals bring together different kinds of people from different neighborhoods. They make dads pause their TV watching; they make teenagers log out of their social media, and bring introverts outside their rooms even just for a while. These celebrations enable you to have fun with others and to enjoy your time, live in the moment while being surrounded by people who have the same purpose as you. Festivals encourage people to socialize, be friendly, and be approachable. After all, there’s no room for loneliness at a festival!

Have fun but be respectful

Of course, make sure you’re happily celebrating the event! It would be more meaningful if you know your heart feels light and when you’re comfortable. But remember, when you have fun, be mindful of others as well. Don’t jeopardize others’ experiences just to increase your unreasonable happiness in a festival.

Share the experience with others

It’s more fun to share the experience with others through social media or word of mouth after the festival. It’s just like finally figuring out the best pipe threading machine out there and telling everyone how excellent it is. However, there’s a limitation when it comes to sharing on social media because using your phone too much at a celebration can decrease the fun you can actually get from the festival. Sharing the experience is a great way to inform others about the festival so that there will be more people the next time it’ll be held. And you know what they say, the more, the merrier.

The Best Welding Festival Ever

The Best Welding Festival Ever

Welding might be considered utterly scientific by some, but actually, it’s also a form of art. The techniques are the proof of this statement.

Shielded-metal-arc-weldingAnd because it’s an art, it’s also being celebrated around the world. There are competitions and fairs that highlight performances and crafts made by ingenious welders who have shown their passion for welding. With their inventive minds, protective boots, rough hands, and quality welding machines (go to WeldingChamps for more info), they bring success to welding festivals.

Although there have been numerous welding festivals held all over the planet, there’s one metal fair you should attend to, and that’s the SCRAP Detroit-Welding Festival.

This annual event started in the year 2014 and has been taking over parking lots and outdoor spots ever since. It’s an arts festival that showcases Detroit’s metalworking culture from welding to blacksmithing. Even if you’re not a welder, you’ll surely enjoy this fun event.

The welding competition is the highlight of the event, and for last year, the theme was none other than “bikes.” All the sculptures made by the 12 teams of welders were based on the topic, and the creativity of welders surely got fired up during the festival. A silent auction is also held after the competition, enabling the visitors to bid on the artworks that were created right in front of them. Artists were challenged to make kinetic and revolving sculptures out of scrap—one thing that contributes to the waste reduction movement.

What makes this festival the best is the fact that all proceeds coming from the auction are donated to Green Living Science, which is a recycling and upcycling advocacy group. The group is also one of the festival’s supporters.

bike-sculptureThe fair runs for a half a day and is free for everyone. It’s also an excellent place for families to enjoy face painting, as well as arts and crafts activities. There was even a bicycle race last 2017! Isn’t that amazing? If you failed to attend last year’s SCRAP festival, don’t worry; you can look forward to this year’s. And since it usually happens in the third quarter of the year, you still have enough time to save money for a sculpture!
