A festival featuring straw sculptures more than 20 meters high wowed crowds on Saturday in Atlixco, in the central Mexican state of Puebla.

Families gathered on the first day of the Straw Festival to enjoy not only the giant works of art, but also activities such as zip-lining, rides and food stalls.

The exhibition houses 25 giant sculptures of animals such as elephants, scorpions, mice, hummingbirds and two giant pandas eating bamboo next to a rainbow.
