I would like to take part in the burning of the clavie, because it gives me good vibes and i would totally enjoy it with my friends and family.
it doesn't remind me of a festivals however it does reminds me of a holiday,
the holiday called "lag ba'omer". it reminds me of this holiday because of course the bonfires but also because of the good and fun mood you have.

I would like to take part in the Cheese Rolling festival because it looks like great fun. It is in a way like football and I think that I am fit enough for this challenge. I have never been in any festival but for me football is also kind of festival. I usually run after a ball so in this festival I will roll down a hill to run after a box of cheese. It will be amusing and I hope not to get injured. I hope to catch the cheese and to beat the locals.

I would like to participate in Burning The Clocks Festival because it sounds interesting and fun to make themed clocks and watch fireworks, although it sounds a bit dangerous to set the sculptures on fire but everything else sounds very fun

I would take part in Black Pudding throwing because it seems fun.
Replying to the second question, here in the north of Chile Catholics conmemorates the Carmen's Virgin, a St., in her honor.

In my opinion of view the funniest festival is cheese rolling )) I wouldn't like to pasticipate this festival, but just watch the participators running after cheese which runs away from them. It might be pretty funny and in the same time dangerous for the runners. Video from that event would be great for my blog, because the main content of it is travelling and adventures.

I think its very good. Q and A are so good beacuse you are learning english very well. When you listen the video you can choose the correct answers easily. They are talking good.

I’d like to be part of the cheese rolling because I’d like to know how it feels to race behind one of them cheeses. I remember when I was a kid I watched on tv people running in a hill but not for cheeses only to see who falls the hardest.
