The occasion is the 28th annual waiters race, which has become a symbol of the French love affair with food.
Waiters wear the traditional white shirt and black waistcoat, each carrying a bottle and glasses of water on a tray.
This is of course a French event, so contestants aren't judged on speed, but their professional savior faire. (----------------)
