From 18 to July 26, 2015 Passignano sul Trasimeno is celebrating the "Palio delle Barche".

On Sunday 26 July 2015, the four
teams from the different parts of the village first have to win a rowboat race and then have to carry up their boats on their shoulders from the lake through the narrow streets all the way up to the castle. A unique experience! Already in the week before there is music, parades and, of course, lots to eat. The whole place is celebrating nonstop!

Of course, there is plenty of mead from goat hoses ... To get an idea have a look at this video
