Think of a festival which takes place in our town / country and describe it. Write the name of the festival, the place, date and reason why people celebrate it. Write also what people do during the festival.
Every year in the second week of October, people in Kikinda, Serbia, celebrate the Pumpkin Days. The festival lasts four days.
A lot of people come to see the contest for the largest pumpkin. They can also taste delicious pumpkin pies. Children dress up in costumes and put on masks and then walk in a parade around the town.
In the centre of the town there is a small fair where children can buy sweets and toys.
The festival is very big. Everyone can enjoy the music all day long.
I like Pumpkin Days because this festival is a lot of fun.
