The smells and colours of autumn invade the town of Vigolzone where everything is being prepared for the long-awaited Autumn Fair, scheduled for Sunday 13 October.
This is the fourth year the Fair has been held, filling the squares and streets in the centre of Vigolzone with the stalls of the traditional market and show, alongside those dedicated to various hobbies or selling the typical products of the land and farm produce.
The Pro Loco will be preparing delicious dishes typical of the local cuisine at their well-furnished stand in piazza Serena. Shops in the town will stay open all day and local restaurants will offer special autumn menus, with tables set up outside.
The official opening of the Autumn Fair – organised by the municipality of Vigolzone, the Shopkeepers' Committee and the Pro Loco, with the partecipation of the association Culture per lo Sviluppo Locale – will take place at 10 am in via Roma (opposite the Cassa di Risparmio) with the cutting of a ribbon and address by the Mayor of Vigolzone, Francesco Rolleri.
Visitors will also have the chance throughout the day to visit the three exhibitions being held at the Civic Centre in via Castignoli (the former schools), dealing with different themes: from archaeological curiosities on Vigolzone between the Iron Age and the Lombard period to the history of watermills, to the photographs taken for the national and local competition organised by the ANSPI club at the Rifugio Alpino.
The Fair also includes an ample display of veteran cars and motorbikes (square in front of the church and in piazza Serena). Little ones can visit the secondhand bookstand (at the Civic Centre) and in the afternoon the little train ‘Prolocomotiva’ will be offering rides.
Once again this year the public will be able to discover the marvels of the area and its history from a carriage, departing from piazza Castello at 10.30 am..
Musical performances will entertain the crowds starting from 3.30 pm: in piazza del Castello “C’era due volte un piede”, a performance by Verónica González of the Teatrino dei Piedi.
And, of course, there will be dancing on a steel dancefloor to the music of the Orchestra Daniele Cordani.
