For 27 days in February, Carnival Tenerife takes place. This big, colorful celebration is one of the most popular carnival celebrations worldwide. You will be surrounded by parades, big costumes, colorful people and things, and so much more.

It is not as big as the one in Rio de Janeiro, but regardless, still exciting, big and crazy! The celebration starts with a big elaborate parade that goes on till night and that's when people come out wearing their fancy costumes. This is the perfect event to listen to great music, dance, celebrate and of course, remember!

If you are doing your internship in Spain during this period, try to attend this event in this region. 

Semana Santa, or the Holy Week, is a week-long religious celebration in April that leads up to Easter. During this time, you will see a parade of religious figurines, floats and parades. The event following Semana Santa is La Feria de Abril, which is a happier event where there are rides, tents and stands set up that people can enjoy. The colorful costumes the locals are wearing are also something you will be able to see while listening to live music playing throughout the streets. Experience these great celebrations together with the Seville locals.

Valencia welcomes the spring with its Fallas festival. Monumental, yet transitory cardboard statues are carefully built over the course of months, to then be devoured by fire in a unique spectacle. Las Fallas de San José is Valencia's most international festival. In the week of 19 March, the city fills with gigantic cardboard monuments, called ninots, for a competition that is marked by art, ingenuity and good taste. 

Semana Grande (Big Week) is a popular festival with a large number of concerts from rock to pop and classical to jazz. Each night there is an important international firework competition, while you should also catch the now-famous strong man competition. Another iconic sight at the event is the giant puppets, as you can see above. Like with any other Spanish festival, there will be a good share of food and drinks.

La Tomatina tomato fight in Buñol near Valencia takes place every year on the last Wednesday of August; the partying starts already earlier in the week.

The event has become one of the most popular Spanish summer festivals with thousands of people flocking to this little Valencian town for this chaotic event.
