Other than it being the longest day of the year and the beginning of summer, in France, June 21st is a national event! The music festival sees towns, villages, and cities hosting all types of music and local performers,
positioned in the streets and in front of cafes and restaurants. It is a family affair, with all ages enjoying the entertainment!
This annual, French tradition has even crossed the pond to New York City, and perhaps, other U.S. cities!
Since I LOVE to dance, I wasn’t about to miss out — so I listened, watched, and danced in the street only until around midnight — I had to get up for work the next morning (the music goes on until about 3:00AM in the Old Town).
Below are some video clips of the evening’s entertainment, so get on your dancing shoes!
