Night of the Radishes

Noche de Rábanos
December 23rd
Oaxaca, Mexico

In the 16th century, after radishes were brought to the Americas, vegetable sellers used to make sculptures of radishes to advertise in the markets. Since 1897 the custom has been celebrated with an annual festival, with the best sculptors awarded cash prizes.
