Tens of thousands from around the world gather once a year in Omaha, Nebraska, for the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholder meeting to hear chairman Warren Buffett speak and to celebrate his business success. Once in town, attendees can explore exhibits featuring Berkshire holdings — 63 are listed on its website, including Clayton Homes and Kraft Heinz.
Here's what the carnival atmosphere was like at this year's gathering.

Buffett worked with 3G Capital to merge Heinz with Kraft Foods in 2015, creating Planters peanuts' owner Kraft Heinz.
Berkshire owns Oriental Trading, whose catalog comes to life at a booth filled with party favors and craft supplies.
