    The Swiss town of Locarno puts on a pageant to celebrate the 'Feast of the Camelias".

  • Description

    Full titles read: '"The Feast of the Camelias" - Whole town joins in picturesque pageant in Annual Spring Festival in Locarno - of "Pact" fame.'

    Locarno, Switzerland.

    Several shots show a pageant taking place in the main square Locarno; nice opening shot of curtains strung between two buildings being drawn aside to show the pageant coming down the street towards the square. Lots of girls prance about with tambourines; tumblers do cartwheels and there is lots of folk dancing, float pulling and general merriment. A large crowd watches.
