Every year about this time my town has a festival celebrating the cows trek from the top of the mountains, where they stay for the summer, down to our town for the winter.
There's a parade on the first Sunday of the 10 day festival. Old tractors start the fun.
Followed by baton twirling.
A marching band.
People dressed in period attire.
These guys were my favorite.
Especially the guy pretending to sell rosaries with the Italian flag strapped to his back.
The polizia stopped by to keep the party in check.
A new addition this year are the super adorable dogs pulling carts full of flowers. There was on dog pulling a cart carrying a little girl. Adorable.
Next were these guys. Pulling something a little heavier than flowers.
No, I don't live in Germany. Italians like beer, but it's way more expensive here.
Unless of course you're lucky enough to be on the other side of the street during the parade and the guys handing beer out of the back of this van stop by you. Then it's free.
