*In our little village (530 inhabitants),
we have been holding a festival around the village lake every first week-end of august for the last 37 years!
*Concerts and a huge firework on the Saturday night.
*Flea-market, jet-ski ride, helicoptere ride, and a giant paella in the evening for 500 guests!
*But the best thing about it, it's to be volunteer in the organisation of the party!
We all grew up together and it's a nice occasion to see each other, the ones we didn't see for a long time, the new babies, the children getting taller and taller, laughting, dancing...
*a nice link between us, years after years
*but please God, next year we could do without the rain... :)
