Pictures from the festival
The cartoon regatta is part of a festival to promote agricultural materials and local products, and includes cooking and eating competitions among Latvian citizens.
Moving to another European country that holds an annual festival, Swiss cows were transported in a strange scene by helicopter from the mountain pastures in which they reside to the bottom of the high meadows of the Swiss Alps to participate in the annual cow parade, and the cows in Switzerland were flown to the bottom of the Alpine meadows in a strange sight .
About 10 of the cows were taken by helicopter from the hills due to the difficulty of accessing a lot of pastures through the use of cars, in addition to the injury of some cows and the difficulty of walking, as they were transported using a mesh belt and were suspended along a cable under the helicopter while it was flying in the sky.
