De mas en mas – second year

de mas en mas rovereto trentinoDe Mas en Mas, one of our favourite local events, actually took place way back in May. But I can still post it here now, right? The combined pressure of uploading photos and writing words had been a little much for me. So lazy. But I’m onto it now.

De mas en mas marks the beginning of the warmer weather, much like the upcoming Magna Longa (very similar event, but with a different location and no krapfen) marks the end of summer.
