Days 74-76 – San Paolino Festa, Lucca

Over a recent three-day period, Lucca celebrated its patron saint and first bishop, San Paolino. Activities included flag parades, masses, artillery firings, a crossbow palio and more. As many of the events took place just around the corner from my apartment, I found it hard not to participate. Most events started at 9pm with drums booming and horns blowing for hours.
