The barrel knocking belongs to the oldest customs in the region. It is a competition that is usually carried out on horseback.

A hanging wooden barrel decorated with foliage and ribbons is knocked out of the bottom, staves, etc. with a club while riding underneath. The kingdom of the barrel, stave or bottom king is contested - it remains until the next time the barrel is knocked down.
