More cows after the jump.

CowParade is the largest and most successful public art event in the world. Life-size fibreglass cows are brought to the streets of host cities all over the world, where they are decorated by local artists and put on display.

CowParade cows have been seen by an estimated 100 million people and, through their sale at auction, have raised over £25 million for charities worldwide. CowParade NI cows will be sold at auction in Autumn 2012 to raise funds for charity partners, Barnardo's Northern Ireland and Depaul Ireland.

More info about the cows - and where they'll next be popping up - from Belfast City Council.
