Fornoli put on a great show today for Carneval. It was a day for the children to take centre stage…with the help of their teachers and parents. 6 local school teams paraded in their costumes. The theme this year was food.
It was a glorious day. Winter sun shone down on the activities. All the participants gathered in the piazza on the Chifenti side of the Ponte della Catene. There were last minute details to attend to and friends to greet before the parade started. The band practised and the children lined up in their groups
Soon they were off for the short walk to Piazza Aldo Moro in Fornoli where the judging of the contestants took place.
It was too much for some.
The contestants were welcomed onto the stage for the judging
Eventually the winners were chosen. The children from Borgo a Mozzano came third.
San Cassiano took second place.
Fabbriche di Casabasciana won first prize to much cheering.
I think they were all winners. Clearly everyone put in a great effort to make the day a success. Congratulations to all.
A special thank you to Marco Nicoli for his hard work and commitment.
Everyone spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying the food and craft stalls and other fun and games.
Glad to see that you enjoyed the event. The costumes look lovely and very imaginative. Thank you for sharing.
A lot of effort went into the day by many people. The event was well attended and everyone seemed to be having fun.
The kids all look pleased with themselves and their costumes. What a lovely event…long may it continue.
This was the 5th year I think. I think it is here to stay.
Looks like a blast! 🙂
It was a fun day.
Such creative costumes, glad the sun shined, everyone looks as though they had a great time.
It was a gorgeous day…perfect for a parade.
They did the costumes so very well and clearly the communities really got into the Carnevale spirit – what fun.
The costumes were fabulous, everyone looked great.
How refreshing, here in California the news is really depressing. Thanks for bringing a smile. The children are beautiful.
The children are beautiful and they all join in and have a great time, parents too.
