The event we’ve all been waiting is finally here! The one and only, Annual Snail Race of Tricio, Spain!

Well, maybe not everyone, but certainly these adorable kids from Tricio’s elementary school. This small town, of about 400 plus citizens, has gained notoriety for this annual festivity, and 2013's winner was the one and only snail called Manchita (Small Spots), a pet to one lucky six-year-old!

Here’s to hoping there’s no French restaurant in town!
