๐Ÿ“Lake Bohinj, Slovenia // ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚ We went to the 62nd annual Cow Ball, held every year at lake Bohinj! This big country festival celebrates three months of good grazing in the mountains, as both the farmers and cows return to their families.
ใ€‹
Everyone gathers in the fairgrounds and the cows are paraded through for all to see. They're all dressed up with wreaths of flowers and holly, and big cow bells, and the farmers all wear traditional dress. Then at the end you can give them a pat (obviously). In the shadow of these huge mountains, it felt like we were in a storybook or something.
ใ€‹
Of course, it wouldn't be a real celebration in this country without mountains of cheese and beer (a horsedrawn cart was wheeling around a giant cheese, just for laughs). Our lunch was basically a plate of mozzarella. Delicious and terrible at the same time.
