Festa Signuruzzo do lacu - Info Point EnnaThe festival is held during the first week of May and culminates on the first Sunday; the day is celebrated in the streets of the village. The procession starts from the Church of the Holy Cross when brethren with a boat shaped “vara” (palanquin) with Christ on the cross inside, make their way to the shores of Lake Pergusa for the blessing of the waters. After the blessing of the waters, the Christ on the cross will return to the church in the late evening where the altar will be re-arranged and where it will stay for the whole year. A peculiarity of the brotherhood of the Holy Cross is the originality of its clothing that stands out from the other brotherhoods of Enna. This uniform consists of a conical cap (cone) covered with a visor, a white coat with a dramatic burgundy collar and other details that make it similar to that used by the Holy Week “Confradias” in Seville. Various recreational activities are organized during the holidays including football tournaments, popular games, bike and foot races.
