Each wise person can recognize the validity of a festival from some of the matters then,determine which
festival is valid and participate in it.
1) History of the festival: Some festivals occur suddenly and they held it difficulty.
2) The awards: Some awards are not good...one hundred dollars for first prize...an insult to the artist.
3) Give the awards: Now tens festival continue their holding without give the prize of the prior period.
