Every year, "Boyeros" (oxherds) take part in the traditional Boyeros Day parade in the Costa Rican capital of San Jose.

And it's quite something to see. 

PICS: Haibo! Where's SA on the Happy Planet Index?

In 2008, UNESCO added oxherding and oxcarts to the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

See what the locals have to say about this sport in the video above.
