Warning
This event has ended

Greasy pole race

West side of the canal

Cesenatico (FC)

Several cities of the Adriatic coast, besides Cesenatico, take part in this greasy pole race.

The participants, in their typical costumes, try to climb the 14 mt. long greasy pole which leans out at an oblique angle over the waters of the canal.

Seven teams, of as many towns along the Adriatic coast, will take part in the twenty-seventh edition of the "Palio della Cuccagna": Casalborsetti, Marina di Ravenna, Cervia, Gatteo, San Mauro Pascoli, Savignano sul Rubicone and Cesenatico. The participants have three chances to reach the top of the pole, where the trophy is placed, and they have to do this without using their hands. The winner must remain on the top for at least 5 seconds.

The “climb” is a true challenge not only of balance but also of being a bit clever. At the top of the pole the Cuccagna awaits, a crown of laurel leaves with cheeses, meats and other delicacies that only the best will be able to reach, thus winning also a monetary prize as well.

The greasy pole race will take place at 9.30pm when the evening lights make the atmosphere even more enchanting.
