The Highlands Festival or Sing-Sing is a large gathering of tribal communities that takes place every year in the town of Mount Hagen, Papua New Guinea. Over 20,000 competitors are judged on the authenticity of their costumes, dances, and chants. These two boys shared a playful moment popping their bubble gum during a break.
