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!
