Or what about witnessing incredible cultural events in different parts of the globe? CharterWind is able to get you to anywhere you want quickly and easily! But what are some of these events we’re talking about?

One of the grandest and largest celebrations on earth is the Chinese New Year. It always falls between the last few weeks of January and mid-February. This year, it falls on Tuesday 5 February 2019, and next year it will be on Saturday 25th of January 2020. Each year, the year has a new theme. In 2019, it will be “the year of the pig” . Celebrations are held all around greater China.The festival is filled with vibrant colors, live traditional music and an array of mouthwatering food, and of course, there are dragons. It has become so popular that you see these celebrations occurring more and more often in major cities around the world. But nothing will compare to the authenticity or the grandeur of the festivities in China.

Now imagine a revelry where the national color is green, the national drink is beer, and the national sport is beer pong. You’ve probably guessed it already: St Patrick’s Day. It is celebrated at its wildest in Ireland, but has gained major traction around the world. It is celebrated each year on the 17th of March globally. Bars are full to their brim, people are out on the street partying, and everywhere you go you see people dressed up as leprechauns. It is a true spectacle.

Rio de Janeiro in Brazil has their own form of partying: Carnaval. It begins each year 51 days before Easter, which is usually sometime between February and March. Carnaval lasts for 5 days, in which there are parties, music, parades, colors, and lots and lots of people on the streets. It is estimated that 2 million people are out on the streets each day. There are acrobats and singers and musicians all contributing to the incredible atmosphere of Carnaval. People wear masks and dance on the street with vibrant costumes. There is truly nothing like it anywhere else in the world.

The day of the dead in Mexico is a little more solemn. It is a 3-day event in which people honor, as the name suggests, their dead. The day of the dead coincides with our Halloween (the evening of 31 October) and lasts until 2 November. On November 1 they honor the children and infants, and on November 2 they honor the adults. They build altars, pray and visit cemeteries. You will see skulls, crosses and other symbols associated with death in the streets and in the shops. Although this isn’t what one could call a ‘fun celebration’, it is truly an awesome event in which you will witness and experience true Mexican culture.

Of course, these are just merely some examples of the greatest events on our planet. CharterWind is able to get you to any event around the world. If you would like more information you can email us on sales@charterwind.com or call us on +1-844-FLY-WIND (359-9463). Ready. Set. Jet!
