The Kanamara Matsuri of Kawasaki, Japan is a cocky little festival where the floats would make a sailor blush. It's a balls-to-the-wall festival where zaniness reigns supreme with giant penis floats, unconvincing drag queens, people sucking on penis lollipops, and dick-themed hats and costumes.

Centuries ago a crafty blacksmith thwarted a devil living in a girl's nether region which had a nasty habit of biting any "visitors" by fashioning an iron phallus.

Today's festival is a celebration of the devil's defeat and modern awareness of STDs.
