It is one thing to see the world but it is another to experience it. Adventurous travelers looking for something extra often time their trips to see some of the world's great festivals and events. Now to help intrepid travelers there is a new book: "Frommer's 300 Unmissable Events & Festivals Around The World
." This new offbeat guide looks at exciting celebrations around the globe and includes hundreds of color photos. We have picked 10 of our favorite events from the collection.
We start in Sacramento, Calif., where each Labor Day weekend the old city celebrates Gold Rush Days and transforms into a Wild West scene form the 1850s. (Courtesy of Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau)
