St Rosalie Fest 2013

Sicily's largest annual festival takes place this weekend, with a parade featuring the St Rosalie float on Sunday, the 14th, ending at Palermo's Porta Felice and the Mura delle Cattive along the Foro Italico near the shore. There will be a large fireworks display at midnight.

This is an interesting event with lots of food and candy stands, but expect large, unruly crowds.

On Monday the 15th, St Rosalie Day, there is a religious procession beginning at the cathedral.
