It is a stellar grooming day the one planned for Sunday, 29th September 2019 at Il Rifugio degli Asinelli in Sala Biellese (BI).
Guests of honour will be the 501st Legion Italica Garrison and Rebel Legion Italian Base, the only Star Wars costuming groups officially recognized by LucasFilm. The passion for the saga goes hand in hand with charity, the main purpose of the activities of the groups.
Walking through the fences you will be able to come across the iconic characters of the saga and take a photo for a stellar memory of the day. It will be curious to observe the reactions of the donkeys in front of these strange visitors.
The initiative is part of the Party for the young superheroes of the Refuge, who have joined the campaign aimed at the under 14s and who have committed themselves to become paladins of the donkeys (to learn more: Club Junior). And for all the children there will also be a fun Treasure Hunt in search of the lost carrot, which is part of our initiatives to celebrate 10 years of opening to the public.
Obviously great space will be given to interaction and grooming: in the morning and in the afternoon the participants will be able to alternate in the enclosures to spend time in the company of the donkeys and brush them with shears and harsh ones.
Participation in the Grooming Day is free, free and without reservation.
The event takes place outdoors and, in the event of adverse weather conditions, it can be cancelled (in case of doubt, please contact us.
The grooming is suitable for all ages; children under 6 must be accompanied by an adult in the pens.
For all, we recommend clothing suitable for outdoor activities and closed shoes (perfect hiking boots).
