In the US city of Cincinnati, for the seventh year now is held an unusual event, dedicated to the Oktoberfest festival. But there are no beer and sausages. There are only dogs in odd costumes.
This event has a very long history that lasts for centuries. It all started in ancient times, when 2000 years ago Chinese people celebrated the fifth day of the fifth lunar month.
An annual competition with a testing of endurance was held in the small English town of Telford, Shropshire. Besides a good athletic training, the participants need a remarkable stamina and courage.
