Press Packer Oscar tells us about a tradition where he lives - and the important role he had in this year's event.
"Once a year, people from all over the country come to Ely, Cambridgeshire, to celebrate the city's namesake - the eel - at Ely's Eel Day.
The day begins with a parade from Ely Cathedral that passes by the Market Square winding down towards the river eventually finishing in Jubilee Gardens.
I was going to the event to defend my title as the best "eel" thrower in the city (for my age).
But when I got there, I saw - to my dismay - that I had been put up an age-group, putting me at the bottom of the 11 to 16-year-olds. I had no chance of winning!
By "eel" I don't mean a long fish with a lot of neck, as you might think.
I think throwing a live one is probably illegal. Instead you're given a lot of socks (with eyes) rolled into some tights with some rice in the end to add some weight to it. Much more fish-friendly!
There are lots of different ways to throw the eel - over-arm, under-arm, or just chucking it.
I prefer the under-arm as it gives the eel more height and distance.
I won last year, and I was determined to keep hold of my title.
Still, a few more years and I'll be in with a chance against the older contestants.
In the meantime, I'm going to keep practising - perhaps by 2012 the sport will be in the Olympics!"
Oscar, 11, Ely
