Halloween Celebration 2016 Borgo a Mozzano
The largest Halloween celebration in Italy takes place in Borgo a Mozzano about 20 km from Lucca. It’s not by chance that people gather there for the creepiest night of the year.
The medieval town and the surrounding area form the backdrop of many legends and local spooky stories. Such as the legend of the 12th century Devil’s Bridge in which the Devil himself plays an important role.
The builder of the bridge was unable to raise the largest arc, thus completing the work, and begged the help of the Devil. The Devil was more than willing to lend a hand in exchange for the first soul that would cross the bridge. Thanks to the Devil the bridge was built in one night. The builder, however, was a smart man and sent a dog up the bridge. The devil had been deceived and disappeared into the water of the river Serchio with only the soul of the animal.
The program of the 3-day Halloween festival includes medieval games, artisan market, ghost conference, exhibitions, ghost finder conference, street food, kid’s party, masks, the Court of the Crazy, Demonic entertainment, Fantasy Parade, ToHorror Festival, Horror show, Cosplay, music, concerts, dance shows, magic shows, fire show and more.
