10 Crazy Festivals That You Won’t Believe Actually Exist – #10 Looks Fun Though

There are a lot of crazy festivals across the world but here are our favourite 10:

1. Yi Peng Lantern Festival (Thailand)

The Yi Peng festival is part of the Festival of Lights within Northern Thailand. The festival coincides with Lori Krathong, which is celebrated across the whole of Thailand. In most of Thailand people show their respect to Buddha by placing floating lights on water. The Northern Thailand Yi Peng festival instead put lights into floating lanterns and release them into the air.

2. Monkey Buffet Festival (Lop Buri, Thailand)

As crazy festivals go, the Monkey Buffet Festival is pretty odd. Basically once a year in Lop Buri the people gather together lots of fruits and vegetables to feed the local monkey population.

3. Baby Jumping Festival (Spain)

This festival takes place annually to celebrate the Catholic fest of Corpus Christi. The festival involves men who dress like the devil and jump over the babies born in the previous 12 months. Definitely one of the more crazy festivals.

4. Holi Festival (India)

This beautifully colourful festival in India takes place in Spring and is known as the festival of colour/love. The festival was originally a Hindu festival but has been adopted by many non-Hindus now too. The festival signifies the victory of good over evil.

5. Thaipusam Festival (Various)

This is perhaps one of the most crazy festivals as it involves people trying to inflict the most pain to themselves through body piercings. The practitioners in this Hindu festival believe that the more pain you endure the more you will be blessed.

6. The Songkran Festival (Thailand)

This Thai festival celebrates the New Year coming in every April by everyone soaking each other with water guns. Or, in some cases, using elephants to soak people! Sounds like one of the funnest crazy festivals.

7. La Tomatina (Spain)

From tomatoes to mud – what is it with these crazy festivals? Interestingly this festival started as a marketing campaign for a cosmetics brand. Basically everyone gets together and has a big mud fight.

9. Night of the Radishes (Mexico)

You get crazy festivals, but this one is also a little creepy. Basically before Christmas every year shop vendors will bring out their best radishes and carve them into different shapes.

10. Cheese Rolling Festival (England)

Not only is this festival crazy, it’s also pretty dangerous. People gather once a year to try and outrun a giant ball of cheese down a hill. You can imagine there’s a few broken bones.
