Festa '800

When I first saw the signs for the Festa I wondered what had happened in 800 that  the Italians were celebrating.  Oh, 1800, that makes sense.  So our town is in the middle of a 4 day celebration of Garibaldi and the unification of Italy.  There is dancing in the streets, food, reenactment of the battles, food, singing, drinking more food and singing.  Did I mention food and singing?

Watching the young men sing and dance last night around the stage I thought of Romeo and Juliet the beginning scene.

The weather is beautiful.  Blue skies, about mid to high 70's.  We are off to try a new restaurant.
