Befana in Prato

Befana arrives in Prato della Valle

It’s the last celebration of Christmas time in Italy, but it is also one of the longest awaited days by all the children, or at least by those who have behaved well and can receive the deserved sock full of sweets. We are obviously speaking about Epiphany! If you want to end Christmas celebrations in the best possible way, spending one day of fun and sweetness, do not miss the event Befana in Prato!

Prato della Valle, the most famous square in Padua, will be the setting for an event that has been conceived for children and adults, too, with a varied program: starting from 3.30 pm on Sunday 6 January, you will attend shows with live music and itinerant performances, while entertainment will be managed by Filippo Ferraro, Chris Lirussi and Dj Matteo Demo. They will present the several guests that will join the event, like the choir Befane Special, the talents of the Daigo Music School and the Dance Crew.

Prato della Valle will also host the association Dottor Clown and, obviously, the Befana, who will meet and listen to children, who will be given socks filled with sweets, offered by Pam Supermarkets (while stocks last). Moreover, children and adults will enjoy hot drinks (free offer, the proceeds will go to charity).

The climax of the day will be reached at 6 pm, with the traditional bonfire, over 10 m high.

The event, which celebrates its 17th edition this year, is organized by the Municipality of Padua with the collaboration of the Provincial Command of the Padua Fire Brigade and the participation of Pam Panorama Supermarkets and the Rangers Security Guard Institute.
