Shepherds' race in Wildberg (15 of 22)
The traditional shepherds' race in Wildberg
only takes place every 2 years in mid-July (next date: 16th – 19th July 2010). The actual shepherds' races are just one of the great many items on the programme and attractions at this four-day festival. Other attractions are the sheepdog trials on Saturday and, above all, the grand festival procession on Sunday at 12.30 pm, with more than 50 groups. The photo shows the finishing line of the water carrying in 2008, one of the shepherds' race disciplines.
