Blue Night 2014

Everything is ready once again this year for the most "celestial" night of the year.


Saturday evening, on June 14, this original nighttime celebration dedicated to wellness and relaxation will begin in the 21 Spas open to the public until well past sunset, from  Salsomaggiore to Riccione.

The program of shows includes more than 100 events and many wellness treatments at discount prices.  The party will also involve whole towns with free events and shows in the streets and squares, which together with the Spas will make this Blue Night a night to remember.  Among the many concerts, nighttime walks in the hills and woods, tastings, pool parties, moonlit walks along the seashore, dance competitions, dinners on the beach, markets and many wellness treatments, visitors can discover the prized thermal springs of this area.



There will also be many free guided tours of the Spas.  Guests can, for example, go into the glitzy Liberty Palace of the Berzieri Spa in Salsomaggiore Terme (Pr) and take a picture of the grand staircase or go to see the springs of sulphor water in Porretta Terme (Bo) or the thermal lakes in Castrocaro Terme (Fc), just to name a few.  There will also be events dedicated to families, health, wellness and to those looking for natural and effective treatments.


The highlight of Blue Night will be at about 11 pm with the release of light blue and white lanterns all at the same time from every Spa.  And, to keep coloring the night blue, at midnight many big screens will be turned on to watch the first game of the National Football Team at the World Cup in Brazil: Italy vs. England.


The event can be followed on many social network sites, starting with Instagram and Facebook.  And of course the whole program of the Blue Night and the wellness offers can be found on the website La Notte Celeste.  On Twitter the hashtag is #notteceleste.
