The public will dive into the heart of Provençal traditions this Thursday, May 9 with transhumance. “Come and take part in the traditions with the folk dances of the Lou Pélican group and the sheep parade in the city center”, specify the organizers. A show to discover as a family with numerous activities throughout the day.

It will all start at 10 a.m., with the Lou Pélican group. Since 1922, the Pélissanne folk group has taken pleasure in donning traditional costume on various occasions. Tomorrow, the public will be able to follow the musicians who accompany the dancers to the sound of galoubets and tambourines. A festive and authentic moment before the sheep parade scheduled for 11 a.m.

The departure of the transhumance will be from Place Cabardel for the crossing of the city. There too, young and old will immerse themselves in tradition with this parade which will mark the departure of the animals towards the mountain pastures. Throughout the day until 4 p.m., a Provençal market will also delight visitors. Family party par excellence, games for children will also be available. Finally, a small meal on site will also be offered.

“Last year, we were labeled La Routo, namely the transhumance paths which were recognized as intangible world heritage by UNESCO in 2023”, remind the organizers. A stand installed in Saint-Martin Park will allow visitors to discover all aspects of Provençal culture.
