#**[LAST WEEK’S THEME: FESTIVAL](https://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/nj977v/minecraft_biweekly_build_challenge_124_festival/)**
Really loved all of the aspects of this build and enjoyed seeing all the different aspects of building shining through. The armor stands added lots of small details to the build, bringing it alive which is what you really want in a build like this. It makes the build come alive, and a festival should be lively. Great build and great scene!
A very similar build to first place. The buildings in this build were fantastic, and it was a joy to look at it. Honestly, we had a hard time deciding between this build and Groundbreaking’s build for 1st place. While we found both building styles to be similar (obviously) and both builds were excellent. However we did find the other had slightly more things to liven it up, as I mentioned before. That being said, it was very close and you should be happy for creating this awesome build!
Well this was very different than the top 2, but a very different and nice build. I absolutely loved your colour palette. The trees especially were great. You could have just used normal trees, but the fact that you decided to make custom trees with the same orange/red colours just made your whole atmosphere change (for the better!).
This time we’re going to be building one of my favorite real life buildings to see! Monasteries!
There’s just something about them that is so calming. Maybe it’s their location? Or maybe it’s just part of their style but I just love these buildings!
Let’s see if this week, those real life buildings can translate well into our minecraft worlds! Happy building!
