Nearly thirty Vichy associations paraded this Saturday, June 22, wearing their colors, from the Place de l’Hôtel-de-Ville to the Parc des Sources.

They were not spared by the rain, leading to small changes to the program. But the athletes from the Vichy clubs still responded to the parade planned for this Saturday, June 22, in the middle of the afternoon in Vichy.

Departing from City Hall, led by the zumba dancers from the Soluforme association, the participants were vocal throughout the route. Shortened due to weather conditions.

The Dance of the Games closed the parade

The parade crossed the streets of the Hôtel-des-Poste, then the Admiralty Passage, to reach the renovated grounds of the Parc des Sources. There, on stage, the zumba dancers gave another demonstration of their talents, before launching the Flashmob of the Dance of the Games, which closed the parade yesterday, near the Hall of Sources.

Until July 27, you can also discover the exhibition “At the heart of Olympism”, presented at the Valery-Larbaud media library. It traces the history of the Olympic and Paralympic Games from Antiquity to the present day, through
55 kakemonos and a touch table. The exhibition is made up of different themes, videos remembering the highlights of the Games and puts you in the atmosphere of the world’s leading sporting event.

Also, this Sunday, June 23, the celebrations continue around a “big sports picnic” at Parc des Bourins, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
