Arezzo - Joust of the Saracen
Arezzo's Piazza Grande helds lively outdoor antiques fair the first Sunday of every month. The Joust of the Saracen (Giostra del Saracino), featuring medieval costumes and competition, takes place here every year in the middle of June and on the first Sunday in September. The competition is open by a show of the famous Flag-wavers (Sbandieratori) and by a parade of the representatives of the four town quarters in historic costume.
