    FESTA
    DI SANT'ERASMO

The patron saint of Lerici
To celebrate St. Erasmus , every year from July 2nd there are many initiatives that create a rich calendar of events from the "mussels" , the traditional night foot race of 9 km, and the inevitable procession of the statue of the saint, carried on the shoulders by Sailors of Italy and the Lerici Brotherhood of St. Erasmus .

The day after, another major event is the placing at sea of ‚Äč‚Äčthousands of floating candles, an emotional splendid show followed by fireworks: richer and more fascinating every year.

In 2015, the last day of celebrations was marked by the mass in memory of the fallen at sea, from spaghetti with mussels and mussels offered by the Cooperative of Mussels of Pozzuolo.
