A festival without a parade is like a circus without clowns.
How about adding mini-games like simple card games (classics and/or "magic the gathering" -type), marbles, dice games, LOTR/LOTRO trivia-based games, checkers, backgammon, derivatives of popular board games, ball tosses like you find in the arcades at amusement parks and other games similar to what you find at fairs? Most could be played inside instances and could be solo or multi-player. They could easily be themed after whatever is being celebrated. Prizes could be themed cosmetics and housing accoutrements or festival tokens or... mithril coins! :)
It's the little things that count :)
Dresses have been missing. :(
Creep- side activities either loot drops or token exchanges.

Chance to win Turbine points in festivals
Such great ideas here by everyone. If Turbine adopted even one of these suggestions it would make the festivals more fun! I personally would like to see more chances to get Turbine points in the festivals. The winterfest one seems to be the only one to give out Turbine points. The theatre was VERY popular!!! Group events was not that great. I had a hard time finding people to do the snowball fight. Giving out either Turbine points or random loot will encourage more people to take part. I would also like to see more frequent mini events, perhaps over the weekend? Thank you.
