Abruzzo – Events
In Abruzzo events and festivals are mainly related to the tradition and to religious celebrations.
Among them the festival of Saint Anthony in Collelongo, and the “celebration of snakes’ guardians” in San Domenico in Cocullo, where a procession follows the statue of the saint tangled by non-poisonous snaks collected in the surrounding mountains by the serpari (the serpents guardians).
Other traditional festivals are
– the festival of St. Martin where a “horned procession” goes around in the streets of the village of S. Valentine;
– the “running Madonna” in Sulmona (April)
– and the Thanksgiving holiday in Introdacqua (November)
