Este trip in spring 2024

Speaking of sister city spirit…Este has sent an invitation for 10 to 12 Fredericksburg folks to come to Este in spring of 2024 for their Flower Festival weekend!  The dates are April 18-April 29(30), 2024!  Priority for participants will be given to those who hosted our Este visitors in October, but if you’re interested, please let us know, and we’ll add your name to the list.

 

The Flower Festival is a regional celebration of all thing green, and people from all over attend, and exhibit…a fine time in Este, which is beautifully adorned with flowers all over town. Our Este friends have also said that during that visit, they will put on a Medieval Festival (year 1192), with everything from banquets to costumes to acrobats to flame twirlers. It is amazing!

 

You can email your interest in going to fredeste2015@gmail.com. Grazie!
