I have never seen or heard of this festival but it sounds like it is something to see. If you have more pictures could you post them of the festival. I searched out the festival in the search engine and they would come up with it but I couldn't find any pictures. I would love to see what it looks like. I bet it is fantastic and a lot of fun.
