Christmas in Comacchio
24th December 2017 - 6th January 2018
The Lidos of Comacchio, which overlook the Adriatic Coast, offer a rich programme. A rough winter sea is the scenery of a great Christmas party based on chestnuts, mulled wine, ciambellas and other traditional products which are served free; in the evening torch-light processions, shows and fireworks blaze till New Year's Day, when clubs and discos welcome people who want to run wild till dawn.
Throughout the Christmas period the Comacchio Nativity Association will present NATIVITIES ON SHOW in the most evocative corners of the historical town centre, under bridges, in the churches and even on boats in the canals. In addition, brought to you by the people and shopkeepers of the town, you will be able to admire the NATIVITY AND DIORAMA DISPLAYS in via Gramsci.
