Cinderellas, Clowns, and Carnivale

Last Sunday evening, a few of us decided to walk to Genzano, a neighboring town, to experience their annual Carnivale. It was a very fun, family-oriented celebration. It was great to see all the kids dressed up in costumes - from clowns and pirates to princesses and fairies - they went all out. It was similar to Halloween in the US. There were vendors selling all sorts of things - clothes, toys, jewelry, and food.

While I was walking down the street, the clown boy's dad pointed to me and the boy ran up to me and gave me a hug! It made my day!

Since we have been traveling around to different towns, sometimes there is random confetti in the streets left over from their celebrations. The streets of Genzano were covered with this favorite party accessory.
