So, this weekend just gone was one of the main fiestas in Lugo - 'Arde Lvcvs'. Lugo is a Roman city founded by Lucus Augusti. This fiesta is the celebrate the Roman history and foundations of the city. It was a really good weekend - there were Centurions marching about, Gladiators, Romans in chariots, a Roman senate, street theatre, slave market, a Celtic and Roman encampment, Celtic weddings and baptisms and lots of stalls on the market to look at. I didn't get to see it all as there was so much going on!
I liked the soldiers most of all. You could be just wandering around town and an army would come marching past or just 3 or 4 on their way somewhere! It was brilliant! The outfits were amazing too. About 80% of people who come to visit Lugo for this fiesta dress up as Romans or Celts.
I have playing about with www.picmonkey.com and I have made some collages of the photos I took. If you haven'y used Picmonkey before, go and give it a try. It's really easy to use and there are loads of effects to try!
