Traditional donkey races

Every town has its festival. Likewise each festival has something specific, making each of our towns special. For the people of Tribunj and their guests, it is the Donkey race, a source of allround laughter and merriment and an event which attracts many people to Tribunj on the first day of the month of August. Seemingly an easy task, all you need to do is get your donkey to reach the finishing line first. However, you first have to get it moving, a task often impossible to achieve, which turns every ride into a hilarious event.
