Dubarry Tuesday Video: Only in France…

A rough translation of the video description states that these massive light-up inflatable horse dancers are the Parade of Horses as part of a Christmas light festival in Périgueux, France. Watching this Facebook video is kind of like watching the ultimate and most bizarre quadrille imaginable as these performers turn slow circles in the city streets:
