In piazza Scotti da Vigoleno it will be possible to admire cattle, donkeys and horses, and, if you wish, to try riding. On Sunday there will also be a farmer's market selling local produce.
Visitors can stop to enjoy the food stands of the Apsd Fario in via Veneto with local dishes and can take part in the Gioco della Coppa (Coppa Game) in viale Vittoria organised by the Pro Loco.
On Sunday there will also be an exhibition of veteran vehicles organised by the Associazione culturale 'Val Vezzeno Old Motocycles and Cars' in via Battisti, while at the Gardens of Viale Vittoria there will be a space for country dancing (Tigers Piacenza).
