MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 4, 2012) - Wondering how to spend your summer holidays this year? You could stay home and watch the biggest sporting event in history; the 2012 London Olympics, or you could book a holiday in Europe and experience fun-packed festivals. Book a car hire in Spain or any of the exciting European countries and not only can you visit sun kissed beaches and a host of attractions, you can also take part in the lively and sometimes wacky local festivals.
Spain is a country known for its fiestas and siestas; both of which make up a great holiday experience. One of the most famous festivals and somewhat rather messy is the Valencia Tomato Fight Festival "La Tomatina". The festival is held every August with around 30,000 people in attendance. They all gather in the Spanish town of Bunol and throw tomatoes at each other. Unlike most Spanish festivals this one has no religious meaning and was created purely for fun.
Watch and listen to the streets of Paris burst into life on the 21st June with the Paris Street Music Festival. Every year the city is host to a variety of different live music acts from around the world. There are beat pumping concerts held and toe tapping Jazz performances; you will even find music being performed for free along the streets of the city or in cafes and bars.
Italy plays its part also by providing a fantastic festival's throughout the summer months that are held against the gorgeous backdrop of Lake Como. The last weekend in June is when the Sagra de San Giovanni is held. The event sees displays of art and dancing. You can taste traditional baked foods and after sunset, floating lamps are set off across the lake followed by an electrifying firework display.
Book a cheap car hire with Auto Europe and choose from car hire depots located at the airports, cities and even remote towns and villages.
