San Bachisio

Loceri is a cheerful and festive village, among the religious feasts San Bachisio is the one that is mostly felt, on May 10. On a pulled cart by yoke of oxen that are splendidly adorned with flowers and coloured textiles, the statue of the saint is accompanied, in striking procession, by the sound of the 'launeddas', up to the little rural church which lies not far away from the village.  The procession is opened by the horsemen, followed by the women in traditional costume, with the banners.
Rich and various is the program of events throughout the year and particularly in summer, when the village opens its Piazza and its characteristic squares with the best of its own hospitality, made of a hostile welcome and friendliness, of a cuisine with characteristic flavours and excellent wine. 
The original sonority of the music, the singing and the sweeping rhythm of the 'ballo sardo', the Sardic traditional dancing, are inevitable accompaniments of the feast, the splendid colours of the groups in costume mix up in an unusual natural way with the variegated presence of the crowd, and in the end all together participate in the circle of the dancing which fills the Piazza.
