Lajkonik Festival, Krakow, Poland : 27th June

Known as the horseman parade, Poland’s Lajkonik festival is a feast for the eyes. Hosted by the country’s second largest city, Krakow, it sees a colourfully-dressed, bearded mogul ride the streets of the city on a decorative hobby horse, collecting “ransoms” for various homes along the route.

Behind him is a sea of men wearing similarly colourful outfits, who play music and dance every now and again.
