Senigallia Summer Jamboree

July 15, 2013 / Events
Senigallia, Le Marche
summer jamboree2It’s that time again. Get out your hair gel.

Senigallia has hosted this huge Anni Cinquanta event for the past 14 years and it is a crowd favorite. Old timey vespas and Cinquecento share the road with Thunderbirds and Cadillacs for this melting pot of Italian and American 1950s culture, with the spectacular backdrop that is the Adriatic Sea. It will feel like you have stepped back in time because for two weeks all you see is 50s clothes and hairdos galore… on the streets, in the supermarket, in the historical district, even under the ombrellone next to you at the beach. You’re bound to get whiplash from all the double-takes.

More and more newcomers come each year from all over the world, but you’ll also start noticing some “regulars” year in and year out, cruising around in their vintage cars (including my ham of a father-in-law, a.k.a. “Giorgio Il Baffo”). Oh, and don’t miss the parade of cars, scooters and motorcylces which usually takes place the last Saturday. You can catch it in town or lungomare.

Buon divertimento!
