In entertainment, the festivals come at the first that have a big role to play there. Let us talk about some of the most interesting and famous European festivals. I hope you will find many of them eye-openers as well.

Throwing Festivals

Let me tell you about some of the festivals that involve throwing objects at people. Don’t get scared; the objects are simple eatables like oranges and tomatoes. I am talking about two separate festivals here. One is Spanish festival La Tomatina that involves throwing loads of tomatoes on the participants. Well, another festival is related to throwing oranges to people. It is commemorated in Italy and the event is named Battle of Oranges.

Racing Events

Europe is not short of extreme sport events that include animals in the festivals. One such event is Running of Bulls, a Spanish festival that gets thousands of visitors annually. It is extremely exciting as well as risky event too. The people run while they are chased away by roaring bulls. Well, another such event is Italian festival Palio that includes horses in the race. The horse riders come along with their horses and take lead in the event.

The festivals described above are the ones that represent the culture of few European countries. You can visit these festivals and enjoy the taste of excitement at its peak there.
