During the carnavale season here in Venice, which lasts a month, there is much to see and do. One day there was a parade having something to do with ten virgins. There were ten pretty women dressed in ancient Italian fashion carried aloft by men, bands, period costumes and teams of people with flags doing precision drills. I have seen this a couple of times in the States at football games. I wonder where the custom started?

As you can see, there had been rain but it stopped before the parade. I liked these colorful flags being flung about in unison.

A video I took of an incredible flag throwing/catching performance

I loved this little cutie interested in throwing confetti at the parade.

This was the style seen in the parade, sort of royal renaissance.

The sun sort of peeked through as we headed home.
