Castiglion Fiorentino Cinghiale Sagra

We like to go to this wild boar sagra in Castiglion Fiorentino that is organized by the local hunting clubs.  This year it was held on May 13-15 and again the next weekend, May 20-22.  Our guests, Pat and Dave were interested in the experience so off we went across the valley.

We arrived well before the 7:30 start so there was time for a walk up into town to see one of my favorite church steeple.

I like this shot of Dave and Pat.  Pat has this sort of suppressed devilish grin that the woman accidentally in the shot between them has too. 

 

No food pictures since service took so long we fell on the food when it arrived.

Maybe there were too many cooks…

 

The food was pretty good and we had fun.  And now Dave and Pat know how to find these events so hopefully they will find many more in the weeks to come as they are traveling around Italy.
