An Oranges or Canoe Festival was celebrated in the Italian historic city of Ivoria where participants enthusiastically lobbed 600 tons of canoes against each other.

You must have heard about many wars in the world. Films and plays have also seen stories of wars being fought in every age with the best weapons available at that time. But in this age of the development of science and technology, there is a war in the developed country of Italy that is not fought with weapons but with the delicious fruit cano.

The talk is about the annual Orange Festival in Italy which, like every year, was celebrated with great enthusiasm in the historic city of Ivoria in February.

As many as 600 tons of canoes were provided for this exciting canoe battle. Children, old, young, men and women all took part in the festival and tried to attack each other with canoes.

Meanwhile the canoes were thrown in all directions to hurt each other. Citizens dressed in colourful clothes were seen with canoes in their hands looking for targets and then fighting. On this occasion, many people also put protective shades in front of their faces to avoid the attacks of the canoes.

This interesting war festival from Kino has a long history. In this regard, whoever hits the highest number of canoes on top of his competitor is considered the Surma of the festival.
