Every year, most of the local villages have their own, mini-Rio style Carnavale. This weekend was ours and we were lucky to have absolutely glorious weather. There have been some years where it has been way too cold for dancing in the streets. And, the first year that we were here it actually snowed (although to be fair, it was much earlier, in March).
No chance of snow this weekend though. The temps have been running in the 20s C/70s to 80s F; the sun is shining and there hasn’t been a cloud in the sky.
The Saturday night part of the event is basically an excuse for making a lot of noise and getting blind drunk. Sunday is a bit more of a family affair, with the kids all dressing up, and a few floats going around the village, until the finale when the king of the Carnavale (Badaluc) is burned to a crisp.
I took some video, so you can all share in the fun.
Ciao for now!
