Title: Montonico festival, Bisenti
Post by: levissima on October 05, 2018, 11:46:54 PM
This weekend is the Montonico wine festival in Bisenti. Food , wine, music and on Sunday afternoon a parade of decorated floats.
Good fun and a nice atmosphere. If you come, there is parking before you get to Bisenti and a shuttle bus to take you to the town. It gets very busy.

Good to see you again VV.

I’ve just noted the weather forecast, not looking good for the parade!

Thanks Levi nice to be back  :)
I didn't go to Casoli today but rain came after 3 so hopefully they got their parade done in time. The fireworks started at 5am!
Tomorrow is the big day, the council have paid out a huge amount to bring Gigi D'Alessio to town. No cars are allowed in the town as they are expecting thousands, buses are taking people up to the town so anyone going should probably go early.

Unfortunately it rained but nevertheless there were hoards of people there and lots of very imaginative floats. I went for lunch at a restaurant just outside the centre of town and noticed lots of camper vans. The restaurant owner said they’ve been coming for the last three years and each year more and more come. I suppose it avoids a drunken drive home as the carabinieri are pretty hot on stopping people as they drive away but also some of the people have come from quite a distance so at least it’s bringing some new money to Bisenti.
