Fête des Marins (Marine Festival) Review

The two-day Fête des Marins is held on Pentecost Sunday and Monday (50 days after Easter). On Sunday all the boats in the harbor are decked out in flags and paper roses, and a priest bestows his blessing at high tide. The next day, model boats and local children head a musical procession.
