Bizarre Food Festivals

Walt: write a summary.

Weird and Wacky Food Festival

I have been learning about bizarre festivals and these are the three wacky and weird festivals I have chosen.

In Coopers Hill, in England, adults and children roll the cheese down the hill and chase after it. The one that catches the cheese and holds on to it for the rest of the trip down the hill wins a prize.The festival is held each White Monday and it has been a tradition since 1993. This strange festival represents the birth of the new year of winter. People all over the world come to participate in this festival now, before it was just people from England.

The Pancake festival is the most famous festival of all. In the pancake festival only young housewives about 18 years old could participate.
They have to race to the finish line and win a prize at their local church immediately if they have won the race. The race is about 415 yards long to run and the place is held in Britain at the UK. They have to start the race before lent begins and at the end of the race they have to toss the pancake in the air.

Tomato festival is the biggest festival ever and it is held on the last Wednesday of August and it is held in Bunol Spain. The people have to climb up a pole to get the ham and the first person to get the ham is the first person to play in tons of tomato. They have a whole week to play in the street with tons of tomato's all over the place. Some say that they do that because it is fun and most say that the councilors are unfair.

These are the Weird and Wacky Festivals that I think are the weirdest festivals ever.
The cheese festival is the weirdest and the Tomato festival is the biggest and the Pancake Festival is the most famous. I would really love Glen Innes to have a festival and it will be called ‘the takeaway festival.’
