Getting ready for the celebrations

This morning was gorgeous so I took a stroll to the Old Town and took the above photo indicating our blue skies.  The flags and trimmings are up on the Stradun ready for tomorrow's celebrations for St. Blaise Day.  St. Blaise is the patron Saint of Dubrovnik and his day is celebrated with enthusiasm every February 3rd.  There are parades and parties throughout the day and the relics of the Saint are paraded through the town.  1,000s gather to watch the annual spectacle.

These are some photos I took during past years of the special day.  Unfortunately tomorrow I won't be able to attend - the office beckons.   Fabulous weather in Croatia at the moment!
