It’s less expensive than traveling to Japan. People here are kind-hearted and friendly.

This is my first time seeing and experiencing such things. I used to stop on my bike and adore the beauty when you look at the sky you feel as if the blue sky is in the shades of pink and white it’s a different feel.

The festival is a 3 day event, every year this festival promotes music, art, and culture mostly it provides a platform to music talented artists from the state not only from the state but from across the northeast region

Several contests used to happen I had the privilege this time to visit every stall there was food, local wine, there was local food, Korean, Japanese

Most of the events are held in two venues one on polo grounds and the other in Wards Lake

These three-day events in the city are full of joy and harmony, with chaos in between few traffic blocks.
