This wild PENIS festival celebrates Greek god of lovemaking with phallic parades

THIS is the bizarre moment carnival-goers rode giant penises down the street before dancing and chanting around a steaming cauldron.

The infamous Bourani festival in the tiny Greek town of Tirnavos traditionally involves residents descending on the town square with huge phalluses to celebrate fertility.

Visitors come from far afield to watch the penis-themed parades and scoff down bread rolls shaped like giant willies.

The festival is thought to date back to 1898, and culminates with residents each taking a sip of spinach soup stirred with a huge penis-shaped spoon.

The phalluses are traditionally made of clay or bread, but modernisers started using plastic and fibreglass in the 1980s.

The Greek Orthodox church has repeatedly tried to ban the festival due to its pagan roots.
