Festa dei Barbari


Today was the last day of our annual festa in Castel Rigone. Festa dei Barbari. 

We enjoy all the festivals but this is our favourite. It’s not just because Jumble House is in Castel Rigone. It’s because it is so much FUN especially on the Sunday when the events start at 5’o clock. 

For four days there is a market which winds its way through the quaint little streets and every evening feasting in the piazza with music, jousting and entertainment. There’s lots of great things to buy but also you can have a go at archery and see how weapons were made. 

On the last day (always the first Sunday in August) there is this great costume parade through the village, right past Jumble House!  This is followed by the ‘palio’ or challenge which does change. Then followers the feasting, really weird music, fun jousting and fire-eaters  and lots of other things.  We really enjoy the food and it’s always fun watching the wine being pumped out of these things that look like giant weed killers! 

Why do we have this festival?  Well, a very long time ago the village was attacked by the barbarians (the Ostogoths). The lieutenant  was called Riggo. That is where the name of the  village come from. The festa is a re-enactment of the barbarian invasion and it’s great fun! 

We hope you will enjoy this  video of the procession: Festa dei Barbari. Castel Rigone.

Are you sitting comfortably … then I’ll begin

What are you doing today? Maybe you can write a little story like Maisie? You can use drawings to tell your story or ask a grown up to write it down for you.

Jumble Fun

Are you sitting comfortably?

Then Maisie Jumble will tell you the Jumble Story.

Children are encouraged to make up stories and record them just like Maisie has.

What a lot of water!

Today I watched the waterfall in the Shoppes at Marina Bay Samds. Wow! It’s AMAZING!

It was only 10am and, since most shops don’t open till later, the mall was very quiet so I kept going up and down in one of the glass lifts watching the cascade. It was just the BEST fun ever!

The photos below are taken from the lift.

 

 

The SHOPPES At Msrina Bay Sands have this canal running right through them and you can take a ride in a little boat called a Sampan which is a Chinese wooden boat. The canal goes under little bridges and every coupe of hours there is a cascade of water from a huge rain oculus (below)

The noise is tremendous!
