Russell Birdman Festival  [New Zealand, 2011]
The traditional start of the three-day Birdman Festival is a "drag race" in which Russell menfolk complete series of challenges such as climbing over a wall of hay bales, downing an ice-cold cocktail, putting on a garter belt and racing around the block on a bicycle, all while dressed in a frock and high heels. Here the contestants strut down the wharf to the starting line - but why is Phil "Bubbles" Ball going the wrong way?
