Colombia Donkey Contest: Donkeys Dress Up As People Practice Their Best Brays

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 town streets wearing costumes as varied as traditional hats, princess costumes, and pink stockings.

People, meanwhile, put their lungs to the test by trying to see who could best imitate a donkey's bray.

The festival honors the rural farmers of the region who rely on donkeys for their daily work in the fields.
