The Blood Orange Festival in fact, involves artists and local associations to promote not only the “Sicilian” folk tradition and culture, but also its tourism peculiarities. The rich festival program includes cultural events, musical and folkloric performances, 0km oranges sales, free tastings of orange delicacies, as well as wine tasting tours, which are all crowned by the parish’s traditional blessing of the oranges.
