Viareggio è il Carnevale
Januari 2002 I was here.
Here I performed together with my fellow musicians from Drumfanfare Oefening en Volharding at it's yearly Il Carnevale.
After a confusing opening ceremony on saturday januari 26th and a performance at Torre de Lago in the evening, at sunday januari 27th it was time for the great Carnival Parade. We departed from Piazza Mazzini at exactly 3 pm after 3 loud bangs. After about 2 and a half hours of walking in the parade, again three loud bangs and the parade stopped immediatly.
It was the best weekend I ever had, making music.
More info about the great parade is to be found at this site
Soon I will post some pictures here from this great weekend.
