Turbine has announced that the Summer Festival is on for The Lord of the Rings Online from now through the 6th August.
As with all good festivals, there's a lot of eating, drinking and racing. The Taste of Hobbiton involves an eating contest, while the dwarves have their own Keg race in which they drink then have a little race. Meanwhile, speaking of taverns the Ale Association and the Inn League are having their own PvP competition.
For more down-to-Middle Earth activities, there's the fishing contests, scavenger hunts and horse races, but when all else fails, you can always dance. Competitively, of course.
The Lord of the Rings Online is one of the premiere free-to-play MMOs, check it out .
