|My favorite house.|
The walk ways are just to cool, sometimes it feels like you are walking around in a maze and going up and down on many stairs.
|This walk way is called "The stairs to Purgatory"|
The doors and windows are just as fabulous as everything else, so much character.

The first part of the festival are the snakes, everyone in town brings a snake to the piazza for the contest. The longest snake gets first prize. Many go into the mountain woods to catch the snakes for the festival. I was amazed how many little children were just walking around with snakes in their hands.
This one was one of the winners.
