One of Carnivals most loved events. Hundreds enter and thousands watch. Teams in groups of 3 decorate their wheelbarrow and push a team member around the village, stopping at each pub to drink a pint of liquid. It sounds strange but its something you need to see to believe. Wheelbarrows are decorated beyond recognition with big sound systems, lights and fancy looking attachments. The imagination of the participants is just fantastic.
