Fete de St Blaise


du raisin et des produits du terroir...which is a mouthful by any one's standards. Basically this is a local festival called after St Blaise, the saint after whom the church is named, and the idea is to celebrate local produce which included grapes, the variety the Servan.

This is the square all dressed up for the party with mimosa and carnations, which is where I started. It's also the place that is the most crowded when the carnival floats come through so I didn't linger long, just long enough to greet some friends and then I headed out to the main road to find a place to watch the parade..
Tomorrow we'll take a look at some of the floats..

Beautiful composition, too.

Typically French ! What celebration isn't linked to food products.
Ok ! Except for the Minmosa ...

Ooh! Sounds lovely! This already looks wonderful — those arches in greens! I can't wait for your other photos!

It is all too much for me. It's everything I envisage and more from this area. Love the composition of the bold flowered foreground.
