festivals/parades in Southern France
I think I have decided to take train to the South of France as part of my 4 weeks in Europe. I am going to be in Southern France around November 27th or so. I would really love to see a festival or a parade. Perhaps a bullfight opening ceremony like they have in Sept in Nimes called the Feria. <BR> <BR> Does anyone know of anything like this in any city in Southern France during November? I have checked several festival finder sites, but am having trouble finding much of anything. Please, if you know of any festivals, ceremonies, parades... please share, <BR> <BR>Thanks! <BR>Patricia

Patricia -- <BR>No info to share with you on this end, but since I'll be traveling to a similar destination in mid-October I'd love to get more detail on what you referred to as festival finder sites. Can you post addresses? I'll be interested to see what comes of your question. <BR> <BR>Thanks, Pat

Pat, <BR> <BR> I read that you are going in November, but I also found a great site that you might want to check out. Especially, if you think you may be back to France, and possibly to Nimes in the future. They have a festival called the Feria des Vandanges, and from what I can make out it is some kind of festival to open the bullfighting ceremonies. It takes place in September this year from the 15th to 17th. Well, here is the site(in case you want to go another time) : <BR> <BR> <BR>Also, there are other festival sites: <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR>Hope these work for you, <BR>Patricia

As I was mentioning above, to Pat, I have just found out about the festival in Nimes called the Feria de Vandanges. Has anyone ever been to this? <BR> <BR>Would you know if there is anything like this in the South of France in November? Please help, as I can't find anything from the web, but there must be some festivals. I guess I am interested in festivals, fiestas, <BR>ferias(?), parades, Southern France. Anyone been to anything in November? <BR> <BR>Thanks! <BR>Patricia
