Festa della Zucca

Normally around Halloween Ech & Will go to the festa della zucca in Venzone. (See our first and second visits) We were really looking forward to going again and finishing our guests' visit with a festival. Unfortunately they cancelled it this year. After a lot of pouting, I buttoned up my lower lip and found another pumpkin festival. We were wary. Normally if it's just the two of us, we just go and see. This time we had guests and we didn't want to drive an hour away for a dud. But in the end we decided to roll the dice.

It wasn't as fun as the Venzone one, but it was still worth the drive. They had displays of medieval instruments and some booths even had people showing techniques of paper and candle making, calligraphy, and archery. There were lots of cute craft tables so we took our time browsing before finding lunch.

We finally tried our first café. I know, I know...terrible. We live in Italy haven't tried their coffee yet. I forgot to warn everyone that café = espresso. Oops. The look on Will's face was priceless! After a couple sugars it was much more palatable for him.
