Another summer weekend, another Festa to enjoy, this time the first weekend in August when my cousin S was staying with us it was Festa del Pescatore. She certainly picked the right weekend with regards to having plenty to do as her first two evenings we had the Santa Marta celebrations Santa Marta Festa and Santa Marta Firework Display then on her last evening the Montefiascone Wine Fiera started. I think she went home for a rest!
The venue this time was along side the lake in Marta in the park and as you can see from the flags was considered an international event. Table and chairs are set up under the trees along the lakeside, near the harbour and one of the local fish distribution companies provides the meals. For two consecutive evenings they cook a fish supper for anyone that cares to join the long queues that form. It is well worth the wait for the 10 Euro menu of local fish specialities.
This was actually a lot more appetising than it looks here!
Of course after the meal there was the musical entertainment and despite the fact it looks like the fans were the children, later on there were a lot of adults enjoying themselves on the dance floor.
I for once did not take many photos but if you want to see the full album it is on Flickr Marta - Festa del Pescatore
We certainly have found July and August very busy this year with all the various Festas and Sagras that we have participated in. With Ferragosto now over we have been able to find a little more time for just chilling out, which is precisely what we did over the weekend. It has really been too hot to want to do much else with temperatures up in the mid thirties once again so not much has been done in the way of the outside renovations, which will now have to wait for the cooler weather. Still it has been a perfect opportunity to catch up with our reading and spend many hours eating and drinking, as we joined friends and neighbours for meals, culminating yesterday evening with Pizzas next door, made in their own forno. The one time I did not take my camera, we were given a close up demonstration of the whole process. We have been promised a repeat performance in the winter especially for me to take photos and write about.
I have just discovered that fellow Blogger Rowena has today given the thumbs up to the Viterbo region and in doing so kindly mentioned me. Do go and take a look to see what she has to say today about the region we are lucky enough to call home.
I have had a second mention today from A Book Blogging friend of mine, although that is not all she writes about, as you will see if you pay her a visit at over at,
