Mees ongewone fees wat ek nog van gehoor het: spring oor ‘n baba. Ek sal nie my babas neersit vir die waaghalsige toertjie nie. Wie sal so kans vat met sy of iemanda anders se kind?
From rolling cheese in Gloucestershire to wife-carrying in Scandinavia, the world is full of quirky, colourful – and downright bizarre – events. They may not be to everyone’s taste, but here is a selection of some of the unusual festivals you can find around the world this year:
The Baby Jumping Festival (El Colacho)
June 11-15, 2009
Castrillo de Murcia, Spain
First staged in 1620, this strange event celebrating Corpus Christi sees grown men dressed as the Devil leaping over a row of babies lying in the street.
