It is great to see festivals reappearing after the 2 years of Covid restrictions that prevented them from happening.
I particularly like the autumn festivals, chestnut, pumpkin and, a new one for me, a polenta festival.
I attended the Festa di Polenta in Gallicano on the weekend. A good crowd gathered in the town square, which was closed to traffic, to sample delicious polenta, bacala, necci, rosticiana and other delights.
There was entertainment and the fun of watching children have a great time.
One of my favourite local festivals is the chestnut festival in Cascio, which I believe is on next weekend. I have been twice and I suggest getting there early to get a park nearby. It attracts a large crowd.
