Fete Nationale 2018

Yesterday evening was our traditional Retraite aux Flambeaux, the march around town following a band, the whole evening rounded up by fireworks then dancing. This year the band was more traditionally French, but conversely less traditional for Preuilly. We have been doing the Retraite aux Flambeaux for 11 years, and I think I am right in saying this is the first time the band hasn't been exotic - usually we have Samba!

They are a band from Dissay, who we last saw at the Comice Agricole, and they were excellent.

This morning Preuilly is extra special quiet - heavy heads from post fireworks dancing, but also the annual fishing competition is on - so shhhhhhhhhhh.
