Ubaldo

Now available on WVIA OnDemand

The 2014 St. Ubaldo Day in Jessup may be over, but you can still relive the excitement and heritage with WVIA's Original Documentary FilmUbaldo , now available OnDemand for the first time.

This one-hour documentary film Ubaldo, a cultural festival more than 800 years old that can be found in only two places in the world, Gubbio, Italy, and Jessup, Pennsylvania. Known as “La Festa Dei Ceri” (pronounced Chedd-e), the historic importance and epic folklore preserved in this celebration have survived unchanged because it reflects the soul of each town and their Catholic devotion to three saints. Participating in the festival is a very important experience in the lives of the residents of these sister cities. Their stories create a uniquely intimate bridge between two countries, two cultures and two communities over which they share their past and present, and traditions of physical challenges and personal values.
