Floats, music, culture and markets. Everything is ready in Castel Bolognese for the 393rd Pentecost festival

There is now less than a month left Castel Bolognese Pentecost Festival, who celebrates his 393rd edition, scheduled for May 16-20. The party he’s hosting Tourist association Pro Loco Castel Bolognese which with the new board presents a rich program of events.

A unique event that was born in 1631 as a vote of the castle population to the Madonna della Concezione for protection from the plague that plagued Romagna at the time, but which spared Castel Bolognese.
Today, the Pentecost Festival is an event that combines local culture with musical events with artists of national caliber and also has a very efficient food stand where the gastronomy of Romagna reigns supreme.

It starts on Thursday, May 16 at 7 p.m. with the opening of the refreshment stand. From 20:45 we move to the square for the “Dance and Rhythmic Gymnastics Gala” organized by the associations AgorĂ  Danza, Danza &.. Danza and Il Cigno. Next is the area for Giovani Operativi (GO) under the city monastery with the first freestyle competition organized by 48012 HH Events.
On Friday, with the stands open, we start with the traditional “Parade of vessels of parishes and ancient professions”, a parade accompanied by the “Banda del Passatore”, “Fruste di Romagna” and the band “Come Cerchi”. This is followed by the traditional pouring of wines from the 7 parishes of the castle and an area from 22 hours of dance music with the group “’90Mania”, with DJ sets, live performers and entertainment.
On Saturday morning, the Agricultural Technology exhibition will open, curated by Graziano Fabbri, in the afternoon from 4 p.m. entertainment in the square with “Photographic Treasure Hunt” organized by the Parents’ Association, from 6 p.m. a refreshment stand will open and from 9 p.m. two pop rock acts will perform on stage bands of the 70s, 80s and 90s HARDHIT and INCOGNITA ROCK.
