  1. Bologna new years eve

    Bologna traditionally celebrates New Year's Eve with the Fiera del Bue Grasso

    The ox is decorated from horns to tail with flowers and ribbons. The church bells are rung, spectators light candles and of course, fireworks are set off. At the end, a special lottery is held with the winner getting to keep the ox. The procession ends just before midnight in Piazza San Petronio.
