Odd Festivals Around The Globe

Compare Guru
2016-06-23
From chasing away winter with scary creatures to jumping over babies to ward off evil. We give you: The world’s oddest festivals.
Festival time is always the best time of the year no matter where in the world you are. Since we are all pretty much familiar with the most popular carnivals such as the Rio Carnival and the Pamplona Bull Run, we decided to take a look at the unusual ones. However, this is not about popular festivals, we’re talking about odd festivals around the globe and these are very unusual ones.

Take a look at five of the weirdest festivals

Baby Jumping Fiesta

This is a real traditional festival, just in case you thought I was sucking this out of my thumb. The El Colacho festival as it is known dates back to 1620. The festival is held annually in Castillo de Murcia and is part of the celebrations held across Spain for the Catholic festival of Corpus Christi.   Expect a lot of suspense at this festival, because babies are literally laying on the ground. The babies are laid on the ground in swaddling clothes and grown men, dressed as devils jump over the infants and this is supposed to cleanse them of all evil events. So, yes it may sound ridiculous, but to each his own and it’s a little bit of respect for the Spanish tradition that counts. el-colacho (1)[2]

Have a muddy good time

The Boryeong Mud Festival is an annual festival which takes place during the summer in Boryeong. The festival dates back to 1996 when a range of cosmetics was produced using mud from the Boryeong flats. Local and International Flights Compare Guru Travel Flights 2 Hosting this festival was part of promoting these cosmetics and educating people about mud and the cosmetics. This festival has attracted quite a few people from locals to tourists. HERO_BORYEONG_MUD_FESTIVAL_Shawn Perez_httpflic.krp54nsvz 1351639506

Busó Festival

The Busó Festival in Mohács, Hungary dates back to the 18th century and involves men dressing up as horned devils, or “Busós”, with and attempt to chase away the winter.   This must by far be a terrifying sight, but after all, it’s for a good cause: summer! Despite the scary sight, this seems like quite a jolly festival as people dance and parade as part of their celebrations. Buso Festival in Mohacs Remember, these are just some of the odd festivals you can join in on, so ditch the Rio Carnival or the Oktoberfest in Germany and have some weird fun!
