There are many weird and wonderful festivals in Spain, but the prize for the strangest could perhaps go to the "releasing of the ducks" in Can Picafort, Mallorca.
This annual event takes place in August from 12:00, is free to attend and is rather bizarre, or to put it another way – quackers.
A boat sits in the harbour and releases 250 ducks into the sea, which the local people must try and capture.
While these used to be live ducks, enough people have protested about potential animal cruelty to mean that yellow rubber ducks are now used instead.
Some people may have complained about the breaking of a tradition, but as no one is exactly sure where the tradition came from anyway, it is hard to argue.
Even people who don’t fancy getting wet or seeing how many ducks they can capture still enjoy the show, with more than 3,000 spectators usually in attendance.
Why not book the Formentor (North) tour in advance?
