Palio del Papero di Balconevisi

Heading somewhat further west, a second, quite different palio takes place every year on second sunday in October: Residents in the little town of Balconevisi hold a goose race.A spectacle for young and old alike, where the geese need not fear ending up in the saucepan. There are plenty of stalls and eateries to provide other regional delicacies. You can find out more about the “Palio del Papero” here.
