There’s no better way to celebrate the summer solstice than dancing around the centre-ville…
…not only with amis, but also with a gazillion other strangers.
But, no need to get too claustrophobe because the ville was beyond préparée for ANYTHING and EVERYTHING!
…The ville was even préparée for children…
So, just relax and enjoy the musique because it’s EVERYWHERE!
Musique can be found from the Cours Mirabeau
to Rue d’Italie
to Place des Prêcheurs to Place de la Mairie…like I said: Everywhere!
Even the cafés, restaurants, bistros, brasseries…you name it, partake in the festivities: They set up tables that extend further along the Cours than normal.
Normalement, the fête is held around the 21 or the 22 of Juin, but this year, Aix held the fête on the 24th so as to have enough crowd police patrol. This is the FÊTE that I look forward to every year (aside from Carnaval)! It’s basically a free concert, so, what’s not to love? ♦
