Radish Festival in Oaxaca, Mexico

If you’ve never been to a Radish Festival, and I had not, then you would be amazed at the creativity the folks in Oaxaca, Mexico show during their annual festival featuring this unheralded root.

Some displays are funny, some of historical nature, but all are worth the visit and the long lines to see them all. Hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I did seeing them.

  1. Astounding what they can do with beets! Who’d athought?

    We’re moving our stuff from the rental this morning, should arrive in Tucson just after the 1st. We’re worshipping at the feet of a man from Grand Junction who managed to make this happen. We should be in warm weather again in a week!
