[AET] Summers End: Carnivale Italiano

Buon giorno i nostri buoni amici. The Canton of Beau Fleuve invites you to Summers End Carnivale Italiano. We will be blending Italian Carnival fun along with generally known carnival fun.

Be prepared to wander the midway in your favorite mask Venetian style while indulging in carnival games, cotton candy, and soft pretzels.  Be amazed by Giants as you partake in a game of Bocci. Cap that off with a wonderful side board and a "don't miss" feast prepared by Baron Janos from Bhakail.

It will be a full day of heavy weapons, fencing, thrown weapons and A&S contests. So far Heavy announced one tourney will be a "Shark Pit" and Baron Caleb announced that there will be a "Two Handed Sword" fencing tourney. More to be announced in both. In addition to a open thrown weapons tournament, The 7 Pearls thrown weapons tournament will be taking place. Come cheer on your Barony's Champion!

One of the A&S Competitions will be based on the Parade of Giants. The Giants are to be a minimum of 7 feet tall from ground to top and must be paraded around the site at times during the day and then through the feast where the populist will choose the winner. The populist is encouraged to offer the handlers of the Giants drink or food, as is the Sicilian tradition. Mistress Aleanor and Baroness Kate have another contest to be announced soon.  The event website will post all these and more.

There will be Children's Activities run by Cordelia Colton. She has some fun projects planned for the kids.

It's not a carnival without music and dance. We invite musicians, drummers and dancers to join us through out the day and feast. Since it's a festival, street performers are welcome, and we ask the populist to reward them. Please bring your banners, heraldic displays and festive decorations to decorate the list fields and feast hall to make this a beautiful Carnival.
