Hi Gezginruh & Steve,
I am happy that you enjoyed this bit of fun, and I thank you for your wonderful comments! This race is a village tradition, where the throwing of flour and water from spectators and participants is acceptable (and encouraged). This year the theme was cartoon characters.
Give these guys their credit, this was about the best engineered raft I have seen for a long time.
Hello Peter HA ha What a fun shot! enjoying this a lot, and it is fun to know what is being thrown around here, flour and water:!! hahaha! sounds like a fun activity. are there any winners here? :)) a fun shot for sure Peter like..
Hello again Sarah! You are right, this is all about having a laugh, and getting wet. Of course it is all for charity. Yes, the raft crews do retaliate, it's all in the game!
I'm happy that you like it. Thank you!!
Super action shot, Peter. Great light.
Hi Whoelius, Thank you for you nice words!
Yes, this is right at the start of the race, and it is all action to paddle, defend yourself from attack, and retalliate. A nice way to spend a summer saturday!
Thank you for looking! Yes, a bit of summer fun. Do they do this kind of thing in your village? Or maybe you have other summertime customs?
