Why Murcia, Spain Is A Great Vacation Destination It"s that time of year again. As spring settles in (albeit slowly), the summer music festival season in Denver is hard on its heels. We"ll be giving you a heads-up about some of these events as they approach-and we"ll start with the annual Westword Music Showcase, to be held June 22, 2013.

The Agricenter is hosting the Delta Fair and festival wristbands on August 31-September 9. You will know you are there when you smell the funnel cakes and corn dogs that give you the full fair food experience. As you enter the park purchase a wrist band so that you can enjoy everything that the fair has to offer. Browse through the many arts and crafts vendors. There is a ride for everyone to enjoy and there is a kid zone that offers fun for everyone to enjoy with the kids. You will be amazed by all of the roaming fair entertainers and taking aback when you see two people eating away at watermelons for a prize. At the end of the evening make sure to stop and take in the lights of the fair. This is definitely the top pick of things to do for Labor Day Weekend. If you"re worried about the facilities that you"re likely sport wristbands to find then make sure that you bring your own toilets. This may sound silly, but it"s now perfectly possible, thanks to the latest range of folding camping toilets. Hosted on Woolaroc Ranch"s historic grounds, the KidsFest features live entertainment, events, games, wagon rides, and crafts. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the parochial grounds and the beauty of the Osage Hills. The Woolaroc Museum has several historical art pieces and memorabilia. The Ranch also sports a Wildlife Preserve. If you choose to assemble your own theatrical troupe you will of course need a place to rehearse the play. If you have secured a location that will let you perform the show, they may also let you rehearse there. If not, there is nothing wrong with a good old basement or garage. My local group spent years rehearsing in basements. My first sales were at TAMUCC at a small open art festival event wristbands. Very low-key but sold all my little ink drawings and cards I created for 5 bucks a pop I was stoked... being a poor college woman. Word of mouth is effective and I have enhanced this with having professional business cards to help with referrals. In addition, there are places that are known for fests or get-togethers that are organized for the love of music. The music festivals, which are organized at different places around the world to cater to the music needs of music lovers ranging in the millions, are in plenty. A few of the must visit fests and get-togethers are listed below. Do remember to read till the very last word, because you wouldn"t want to miss out on any tiny bit of information about the places that you can include in your music travels. Tip: Make sure you pick up a map even if you know your way around the park. You"ll need it for the unlimited cocoa and chocolate chip cookie stands located throughout the park!

Patrol teams trek through deep snow to ensure animals get enough food to survive the tough northern winter.

As people across Northeast China were celebrating Spring Festival and preparing to welcome warmer days, life was still hard for wild animals in the Changbai Mountains National Nature Reserve.

In winter, they have to scratch around the frozen ground to find enough food to survive.

The reserve, in Jilin province, consists of about 86 percent forest and is home to more than 1,500 wild species, such as roe and red deer, black bears and yellow-throated martens, according to the local forestry department.

To provide the necessary sustenance for these animals, forest rangers trek across the rugged terrain every day during winter, carrying corn up the mountain.

The temperature on the slopes had dropped as low as -20 C as a result of two heavy snowfalls. Frost covered the rangers" eyelashes, faces and hats as they waded through knee-and even waist-high snow. They walked in a line so the leader could carve a path through the thick snow for those that followed, but some stumbles were unavoidable.

Xu Guihua, the 39-year-old leader of a six-strong team of rangers, said the animals must not be forgotten, even though people were celebrating Spring Festival.

As in previous years, Xu and the other members of his team remained at their posts when most people were enjoying family reunions during China"s most important holiday. They huddled together in a 50-square-meter hut at the foot of the mountain, which saved them an hourlong drive from the town, to better protect the animals and plants.

"We cannot take off and leave the forest and its creatures unattended. Instead, we brought our wives and children to celebrate Spring Festival here in the mountains," Xu said.

Each ranger usually carries 25 kilograms of corn during every daily 10-kilometer trek. However, this time they carried more to help the animals through the spell of bad weather.

The weather meant they were only able to take short breaks because the cold wind would enter their sweat-soaked clothes and freeze them to the bones.

"It"s boring and hard work on the way, but when we arrive at the feeding spots, there are always a few surprises," Xu said, noting the high number of animal tracks around the wooden feeding shelves that resemble a small pavilion.

"There are so many paw and hoofprints in the snow. Wild pigs and deer must have visited yesterday. We put out 500 kg of corn at each of our two feeding points. We are always pleased to see that all the food has been eaten overnight," Xu said.
