The best reason to visit Shimla during summers has to be the famous Summer Festival that is held every year in the month of May. This famous festival is a riot of colors and festivity and is celebrated on a grand scale. The Summer Festival in Simla is a beautiful amalgamation of various talented people of India who make it an event that is remembered for a long time to come.
We visited Shimla last year in the month of May at the time Summer Festival, there was a great rush of tourists, all hotels were packed but nothing to worry as we had already made booking through himachalhotels.in. They served me everything at hand and I must tell you,we enjoyed a lot.
The Shimla summer festival is organized at the Ridge Shimla.Major attractions of the festival includes Star Nights, Himachal Food Fest, Painting competitions, Roller skating completion, Fashion Shows, Flower Shows etc. Red Cross Fair, adventurous sports and various Handicraft exhibitions provide the people with a whole lot of excitement to enjoy the summer vacations.
I must tell you, we enjoyed a lot and I am planning to visit Shimla again in summer festival
