The nine town districts of Garda participate in this year’s district festivals held. The districts are being represented by their coloured banners and and the fish traditionally associated with each district. The “Palio in Rosa″ women’s rowing contest is held on the waters in front of the town hall on Saturday. The 2019 district rowing contest, the most famous and popular event in the town from which Lake Garda derived its name, takes place on 15 August 2019 and on the Assumption of Mary, who is Garda’s patron saint. The evening rowing contest is held in the waters before Garda against a splendid backdrop on the Bisse, typical flatboots of Lake Garda. The winners receive a statue of the Virgin Mary as a prize. The event ends with a firework display.
