Friday 4th & Saturday 5th August

One of the things we have learnt about living in Provence is that there is a season for everything. You can buy copious amounts of fruit and veg,when its in season! You can buy car windscreen sun shields,when its summer!You can buy heaters just before winter and garden furniture as soon as spring breaks, obvious I know, but Summer also brings unlimited out door festivals covering dance, music, drama, art, wine and cheese etc, there is a festival for everything! In our village as well as the Vide Grenier on Bastille day they also have a Fete over this weekend. The road where we normally park is closed off, a large stage is set and stalls are built to cater for the crowds! Friday night is disco night 10 pm till 2 am!, Saturday is a live band, same time and Sunday is again a Disco. What is incredible is the crowds that come, the French love to dance and the level of noise! As it happens we went to an out door classical Piano concert on the Saturday night but stopped off on the way home at just after midnight when I took these pictures.
