    Is that the festival related to the hornbill bird? A friend shared stories of the festival and it kinda interesting.

    Even I have heard of the Hornbill festival but never seen it being much-advertised maybe because it's in the North East of India, but I know this much that it's one of the festivals which must be attended at least once in a lifetime.
    I am too interested in knowing more about it, and hope one day I can attend the festival too.

    Same here! It is pretty good to have a personal experience of the festival compared to just hearing it from others. So someday, I would really wish to attend this Hornbill Festival.
