A Wimpy Saint Andrew’s Day Celebration

Saint Andrew (Sant Andrea) is the patron saint of Gricignano, the town where I live. Fireworks are shot off all over town, I hear about one an hour from 7am to 1am. The celebrations last a few days, with nothing terribly interesting actually going on. This year the big parade started at the end of my block so I caught the whole thing on video! Sadly, this is better than last years.

It’s hard to catch the fireworks when they start, and by the time I get my camera and get outside they are basically over. So enjoy the tail end of some fireworks…some you can’t see though, sorry…it was day time when I shot these. I dedicate these videos to my Mom and the Black Cat firework crew.

    An email from Mom:
    “That is the saddest parade I have ever seen! And the fireworks would probably be better if it was dark. They were pretty bad as well. But thanks for thinking of me.”
