Fiesta de los Rabanos (Festival of the Radishes)

Location: Main Square, Oaxaca, Oaxaca

Local artists and sculptors display their amazingly creative work made using...radishes.


Love it! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Say what you will, though, it's still far more inventive than the Tomatina in Buñol in Spain, where they just throw over-ripe tomatoes at each other. :roll:
