Children's Theater Festival, 2

Last night's headlining event in the "Ti Fiabo e Ti Racconto" Children's Theater Festival was "The Pillow Fight," led by the Compagnia il Melarancio (from Cuneo), but performed by everyone present. 654 soft beanbag type pillows were dropped down onto the audience from above and the fight was on! Hundreds of men, women and children went wild throwing pillows around. It was a lot of fun!
Claudio, one of the festival helpers, kindly agreed to model the official festival t-shirt.

Your first foto is realy beautiful and it is nice that Michele showed us the t-shirt. A very nice t-shirt.
This looks like a very funny and interesting event in Molfetta, and a great source of nice images.

What fun. They would never allow that here.

The street pillow fight sounds and looks like so much fun!

Blogger — and our slooow internet connection the past week — didn't allow me to leave a comment yesterday. I just wanted to say that I love the marionettes! I think they would have freaked out my older brother though! ;D

I love the way you captured the action and the energy and excitement of the event in the first photo...

I wouldn't have minded joining in a little pillow fight myself - it's been way too long since I've done that!

It really was SO much fun! One of my jr. high school age students and I really battled it out...but it was a free-for-all, everyone against everyone! And, at the same time, it was everyone with everyone, very friendly and lighthearted.
