Dieser Artikel auf Deutsch: Der Große Antonio in Valencia

January 17th is the day of San Antonio, patron saint of animals. In Valencia, celebrations center on the neighborhood and church which bear his name, where people bring their pets to march in a crazy parade and get blessed. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many 4-legged creatures in one place — dogs were the most numerous, but they were joined by cats, hamsters, rabbits, goats, pigs, fish, lizards, birds… and just about everything else you could possibly consider a "pet".

As you might expect, we got a lot of fun pictures. Enjoy!

    Again, another great collection of pics ! Just in case you run a “Most Scary Contest”, my favorites are: 1) Weird lady reaching for pony, 2) Pervert reaching for goat’s butt, 3) Guy on stool too close to horses head, and 4) guy with slimy salamander on hand.
