Fodor's Review

On the fourth Sunday of May, and again on the second Sunday in August, Massa Marittima's three traditional neighborhood groups dress in medieval costumes and parade through the town with much fanfare and flag throwing. The pinnacle of the event is a shooting competition between the town's districts using arrows and crossbows.
