Viareggio Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 35 photos

Januari 2002 I was here.
Here I performed together with my fellow musicians from <a href="http://www.oefeningenvolharding.nl" target="_blank">Drumfanfare Oefening en Volharding</a> at it's yearly Il Carnevale.
After a confusing opening ceremony on saturday januari 26th and a performance at Torre de Lago in the evening, at sunday januari 27th it was time for the great Carnival Parade. We departed from Piazza Mazzini at exactly 3 pm after 3 loud bangs. After about 2 and a half hours of walking in the parade, again three loud bangs and the parade stopped immediatly.
It was the best weekend I ever had, making music.
More info about the great parade is to be found at <a href="http://www.ilcarnevale.com" target="_blank">this site</a>

Soon I will post some pictures here from this great weekend.
