A participant hangs onto the neck of a plastic goose which is tied to a cable and raised and lowered into the water at the harbour. Lekeitio (Basque Country) September 6, 2015. During the celebration of "Antzar Eguna" (Goose day), contestants have to hold onto the goose as long as possible, trying to break its neck, while being dunked in the sea. In former times the geese used to be alive. Nowadays some contestants ask for dead geese and some other for plastic ones, specifically made for this event. (Gari Garaialde / Bostok Photo)
