Festivals and Gatherings in Italy – June 16, 2014

Everywhere in Italy at this time of the year there are a series of festivals and open markets where one can go and have a good time.

Last week, here in Arco, we even had a Vegan Fest with street art and music.  The music was fine and everyone had a pretty good time.

Just one off note – I do have to admit at the time I did get a little irritated when a young woman gave a speech at the dining tent saying people who ate meat were cannibals and I don’t sympathize with people who try to make their dogs and cats vegans either, basically because I believe to each his own…

This is for Tourist in Your Own Town for Canadian Travelbugs!



For Canadian Travelbugs’ Montly Tourist in my town, I thought I’d show you a few more Christmas scenes from my town!

This is Riva del Garda, Trentino, Italy on the night between the 21st and 22nd of December.  I just love to try and shoot photos at night.  My camera doesn’t really do a great job of it though unless I use a tripod…but we were out celebrating and so no tripod was on hand.  A couple of the photos I took with my Nokia phone…my Oympus ran our of energy…

Season’s greetings from my town!  Ciao, Bastet!
