Throngs of people gathered to celebrate Vespa scooters in eastern Java, Indonesia.
The annual event attracts hundreds of enthusiasts of all ages to celebrate the classic Italian scooter.

Fans of the festival, held in the town of Kediri, showcased their customised mopeds, with embellishments that ranged from traditionally restored scooters to a “Mad Max” inspired metallic machine equipped with fake guns.
