Amandola – 21 August 2011
The costumed parade along the streets of the town commemorates the traditional offering of grain to Blessed Antonio, Amandola''s patron, in thanks for the harvest.  The streets and houses are adorned with sheaths of wheat twisted through with red and yellow ribbons, the town's colours. Piazza Risorgimento is decked out with old farming tools and machinery of the contadini. The band leads the procession which ends with a religious ceremony in Saint Augustine's Church (la chiesa di sant'Agostino).
