Summertime in the South of France is fête or party time. The street festivals bring everyone out with good food, music, crafts, snacks, and non-stop entertainment.
This series presents images from the Foire aux Huîtres de Bouzigues. This was the 35th edition of the Oyster Fair in Bouzigues. It featured the Brazillian Butaca Nostra dancers and marching band, and the Compagnie Elixir street performers. While the adults enjoyed their oysters and mussels, the children cooled off on the waterslide.
The second festival featured in this series is the Festival Danses & Musiques du Monde d'Amélie-les-Bains. Street musicians and dancers from Ukraine, Mexico, Argentina, a Benny Goodman jazz band, and many more gathered in the streets of Amélie-les-Bains for a week of dancing and good music.
