Sea Wedding

Sea Wedding

576th edition. In Cervia the Marriage of the Sea 2020 is dedicated to Pope John Paul II. The ancient rite will take place in private but with the warmth and affection of the whole city.

A very old and traditional event, it is one of the most beloved in the town. It has now come to its 576th edition but its ancient rite celebration at the sea and its fishing-of-the-ring challange, where young Cervia residents try to get the "trophy" bringing good luck and prosperity have lost none of their atmosphere.

Not to be missed are further events before the ceremony very celebration at sea, form the Cursa di Batell - Historical Regatta with historical lugsail boats, to the Ring tournament, shoe of skilled archery, exhibitions, shows and streets markets.
