Musings on life in Lodeve, Languedoc

Saint Fulcran’s festival

Posted by celiahukins on 17/05/2012

I’ve written about St Fulcran’s festival before . It’s a mixture of religious and secular events. The picture above shows his relics being taken in procession around town on the Sunday morning.

The Pastaires and Tastaires were out in force.

St Fulcran was the Bishop of Lodève in the 10th century and has a cathedral dedicated to him.
As well as the Sunday procession, there is a procession with majorettes on the Saturday evening.

The majorettes performed some interesting dances.

On the Friday evening a band played on the stand on the tree in SuperU car park. This seemed like a good use for the stand: we had wondered why it was there. The white thing you can see up there is the Easter Bunny, which replaced Santa and his reindeer.

The festival has continued with a flea market and a flower market. The fair has been open all week. On Saturday there will be a firework display.
