We like to keep an open mind to travel, including when to go. But there are certain times when you simply have to be there. Think of the spectacular floral floats and marching bands at Pasadena’s famous Tournament of Roses Parade. You’ll never forget hundreds of hot air balloons ascending the sky, like floating pieces of brightly coloured confetti, during the world’s biggest ballooning event at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. We love nothing more than a celebration, so keep an eye out for Globus' Festival & Events tours that put you right in the thick of the action.
