Bucharest is not the same with herds of decorated cows stampeding through the city! Let loose the child in you, and, no matter your age, join us at the world's largest public art event taking place for the first time in Eastern Europe!
How now brown cow?
Local and international artists did paint, sculpt, draw, smartly attire and re-engineer these placid creatures into forms never before seen. Bucharest became one of only 25 cities that have hosted CowParades around the world. Between 1 June and late September 2005, we expect to see 50 bovine beauties on our streets and in our parks. With the enthusiastic support of Bucharest city officials, our colorful, creative and crafty creatures will charm their way into your hearts. The team at Event Horizon, the official organizers of CowParade Bucharest 2005, say Join the Moo-vement!

Let me Win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.
The motto of Special Olympics is globally known. But not in Romania. Special Olympics Romania, the official charity of CowParade Bucharest 2005, will benefit from proceeds raised at the cow auction that will occur in September, as well as from the exposure and the publicity of CowParade. These special athletes with intellectual disabilities enjoy the athletic training, the socialization and the team spirit created by this very special organization.
