13th August: Because Apparently There’s A Never Ending Supply of Day Festivals in Italy…

Tomorrow Appeninnfest takes place. For one day the land between the National Park of the Tuscan Emilian Apennines and the Parco dei Cento Laghi will be transformed into a festival space with a market, music and a whole lot of activities for kids.

It looks like it’ll be ideal for those of us with children as the organisers have placed a special emphasis on activities for children this year. Children’s activities include donkey acrobatics in which children will be taught how to balance on the backs of donkeys, donkey rides, obstacle courses, puppet shows and canopy tours.

For those of us without the head for heights required for riding zip wires around tree tops there are other activities. Amongst them guided hikes around the lakes led by nature specialists, a market selling food and wine and a concert in the woods.

All activities are free except for the canopy tour.
