The character and essence of the Galway Races

In a recent visit home to Ireland, I spent a few hours at the Galway Races (horse racing). I’m not what one would consider to be the ‘horsey-type’, but love the spectacle of the festival and the people watching. Check out my visual translation of the event.

Fun fact… The Galway Races draws over 250,000 people from all over the world. It is the highlight of the year for local businesses as crowds flock to attend one of the world’s biggest horse racing events.
