Donkeys dress up while people practice their best brays at Colombian fest

Roles seem to be reversed at the Colombian town of Moniquira’s Donkey Festival where donkeys dress up and people win prizes for braying.

Donkeys paraded through the streets of the town wearing costumes as varied as a traditional hat and braids to shiny wings and pink stockings. People, meanwhile, put their lungs to the test by trying to see who could best imitate a donkey’s bray. Moniquira’s mayor, Ancisar Parra, said the festival was meant to honor the rural farmers of the region who rely on donkeys for their daily work in the fields.
