After discovering more photos of the umbrella installation that’s up right now in the small town of Agueda in Portugal, we knew we had to show you them.

AgitAgueda, which runs from July 6 to July 28, is an art festival held in Agueda that consists of concerts, shows, cultural events and crafts. This year, they even put on a colorful carnival-style parade complete with crazy costumes and bands.
