Three Kings

The holidays just keep coming... after Christmas and New Year's Day, today was Epiphany, another Catholic holiday. Since we flew back to Florence yesterday, after spending two weeks in Germany, we got to have one free day before it's back to work tomorrow. In the afternoon, we went downtown, where we watched the parade of the three kings make its way towards the Duomo. Not only was it the three kings, though (in Renaissance costume), but they were followed by costume groups, flag throwers and drum corps from seemingly every small town around Florence. What Civil War reenactors are in the US, Renaissance reenactors are in Tuscany.
