Juno Moneta Festival and the Vestalia

On Saturday the 16th, the Citizens of ROMA celebrated the festival to Juno Moneta. Rituals on the Capitoline Hill were followed with play around the new Tarpeian Rock, a picnic in the Gardens of Maecenas, and a tour of the new ROMA Winery. (Flicker pictures can be found here.)

The next day, the 17th, the Vestalia was celebrated with a torchlight procession through the Subura, rituals at the Collegia temple to Vesta, and late night dancing on the Collegia's grounds. (Flickr pictures can be found here.)

Many thanks to all who organized the festivals and attended!
