Arriving in Cambridge in mid-September, a visit to Cambridge Carnival International, one of the most prominent events in the festival calendar of Cambridge, should be a must-have for your sightseeing program. At this time, a colorful costume parade is held on Kendall Square, sellers offer to enjoy the great taste of local and world cuisines, art exhibitions are organized, fairs open where you can buy unique hand-made products. Of course, the festival cannot do without street parties and festivities. The roots of the festival can be traced to Africa and the Caribbean where it is customary to demonstrate the culture through such bright events. It is worth noting that this festive event is absolutely free of charge.
No less remarkable date in the holiday calendar is the Cambridge Jazz Festival held annually in late July. At this time, the picturesque Danehy Park is visited by famous jazz and bluesmen from around the world. Here you can also listen to funk, soul, rock - and, of course, dance to this music. Since it is open-air, it is considered an excellent opportunity to enjoy stunning panoramic views, relax, have a picnic and camping - that is, spend time with loved ones in the most pleasant way.
Every Saturday, the colorful "Donkey Show" is staged at the Oberon Theater. If anyone would like to see the amazing combination of Shakespeare (or, more precisely, his comedy "A Midsummer Night's Dream") and dance, this is a great opportunity to finally make the dream come true. Even though it may seem unthinkable, the show amazes everyone who've decided to witness the original combination. The event is attractive for its atmosphere - the thing is that all visitors become not just spectators but direct participants of the show, and even those who couldn't imagine themselves dancing to the music from the '70s start getting into the rhythm and have fun as if their whole life depends on it.
