Fete de St Blaise: The Floats


The carnival floats are a delight to see as they trundle up the road pulled along by tractors. Each is decorated with bundles of flowers mainly mimosa and carnations arranged according to some theme. I noticed a Moulin Rouge, an Eiffel Tour and a Lion King float. There were hippies and cheerleaders and marching bands.
The parade does two turns round the village while the occupants throw flowers at the crowd...

More tomorrow...

There is "La Fete des Citrons" and ...then...La FĂȘte des Mimosas".
I love this flower, it reminds me the sun arrival.
