• Folklore and Tradition

This carnival, created in 1981, is sure to enchant you with its creativity and cheerfulness. 

Program

Friday night:

The festivities start with the Night of the Intrigue, a fascinating light and sound show.

Saturday:

  • music, masquerade and ball at the Halle aux Draps.
  • Kids will love the balloon release at 5 pm and the "Pichous", thrown from the top of the belfry at 6 pm. A gourmet carnival emblem for more than 20 years, this sweet little roll of candied fruits has the appearance of a little man, in a nod to that of the Saint-Piat district.
  • The Pichous throw takes place before the burning of the carnival king: a big pyre around which the children find themselves dancing to the sound of the tam-tams!


Sunday:

  • Ball for children (music show, cakes, party for kids)
  • The guilds go from one café to another.
