Cow Parade in Bordeaux

3

Why should you go to Bordeaux? It’s the city where you’ll have the most fun in France. Last year, 58 cows were unleashed in the city making it the most colorful city I have ever seen.

Charles Dickens once said: “Cows are my passion. What I have ever sighed for has been to retreat to a Swiss farm, and live entirely surrounded by cows – and china.”

Bordeaux and Cow:

Cow Parade was the most fun cultural event I have seen in France. They were all made by local artists and sold at an auction to help La Banque Alimentaire (the food bank). La Banque Alimentaire got 180,000 euros from the proceeds of the auction. All I can say is, Holy Cow!

My favorite cow was this one :

I wished I had it! But for one thing, I didn’t have any money to bid on it and another, I’m not sure how it would fit in my one-bedroom flat in London.

But if you are lucky enough to have a house or palace in London you may purchase a cow on: http://store.cowparade.com/LIFE-SIZE-COWS/products/38/

The Cow Parade is moving from city to city (Cow Parade events have been staged in over 50 cities since 1999 ) so watch out for news and events on: http://www.cowparade.com/

And wouldn’t it be amazing to bring the Cow Parade to London and get them involved with Lomography?

If enough people submit this idea, who knows what could happen!

With over $20 million raised for different charities since 1999, Cow Parade is my favorite cultural event. Don’t forget to follow them on Twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/ronfoxCOWPARADE
