There are so many countries that have folkloristic costumes that are so beautiful, and there are also a lot of different festivals or parades showing off these rich traditions. We do in Norway, as I have just mentioned, and I have seen parades and celebrations of this kind in other countries that I will never forget. For my part, especially in Italy. But with the terrible earthquake in northern Italy today, I feel it is not the time to show a lot of these pictures.
So here only two, with costumes that shows both differences and similarities whith the scandinavian. These photos are from the Cavalcata Sarda, in Sassari, Sardinia. It goes on every year in the end of May, that is this weekend. I might get back to the subject. There are some more in my photo gallery from Sardinia.
