Background: St. Eloi's Day, July 31, sees the cart drivers' festival in the town of Graveson, Bouches-du-Rhone, France - a ceremonial dating back to 1729.
Splendidly caparisoned horses harnessed to a decorated wagon are driven through the streets at breakneck speed to the local church for a priest's blessing.
