Over the summer many local communities, especially in Europe, tend to organise small festivals to celebrate events, anniversaries and local traditions. Volunteers often play key roles, setting up, welcoming visitors, and dismantling afterwards. It can be hard work with long hours, but also exciting and rewarding, with the chance to get involved in the activities, workshops and events.
