Satire Festival in Poznań

A 16-meter-high replica of Paris' Eiffel Tower was erected in the western Polish city of Poznań as a prop for the first "Billy Goats" Festival of European Satire that was held in Poznań's Wolności Square Sept. 6 and 7.

The festival was divided into two parts-a contest for draftsmen, painters, sculptors and graphic artists from across Europe, and festivities on Wolności Square on the first weekend of September. For two days the square turned into a Polish Montmartre, with artists producing caricatures of passersby, an international cartoon exhibition, shows of animated films and cabarets, and French music played on stage.

The French embassy and the mayor of Poznań were the honorary patrons of the event.

The title of the festival refers to a popular tourist attraction in Poznań: two billy-goat figures butting heads at noon on the local City Hall tower.
