Perugia.
This year's Carnival festivities will officially end on February 5th,
although on February 9th Trevi will be holding its Carnevale dei Folli
and there will be an event on February 10th in Foligno.
Every village will also have a carnival party for the children with a parade
of adorned floats and cars and prizes for the most original.
The typical carnival sweet is the "castagnola",
deep fried lumps of sweet dough, which are dribbled with honey
and accompanied by a drink of thick hot chocolate!
