While impatience is growing among many people in Mont, the students of the Saint Joseph d’Obourg school did not wait until May 26 to immerse themselves in the ducasse de Mons. Procession, ride of the Car d’Or or even the so-called Lumeçon fight were on the program of the day within the school. Accompanied by actors from the real fight, children aged 2.5 to 12 were able to experience Mons folklore from the inside, under the watchful and, above all, admiring eye of their parents.

So you didn’t have to wait for the weekend of May 25 and 26 to live to the rhythm of Doudou. The students of the Saint Joseph d’Obourg school have indeed already allowed us to immerse ourselves in this folklore, dear to an entire region. “Kindergarten and primary school students from our Obourg location once again organized this year a re-enactment of the so-called “Lumeçon” fight. For this edition, it was completed by a small procession ending with a ride on the Car d’Or, a moment long awaited by the people of Mons. Made up of children aged 2.5 to 12, this event is intended to represent the family character of our school. With the presence of musicians, actors of the great fight and representatives of different groups of the procession. So it was, in a way, the Doudou before its time”, explains Stéphanie Roland, director of the establishment.

Doudou necklaces and bracelets: who are these sellers who wander through the crowd at each edition?

Many parents followed the procession made up of these aspiring actors from 11 a.m. After a trip through the village streets, the dads were able to help the Car d’Or get back to the school before a well-deserved break. This afternoon, the so-called Lumeçon fight will be in full swing under the ever-watchful eye of parents.

Who to vote for on June 9?

Who says ducasse obviously says costume! One of the school’s teachers is then on hand to make everything. Over the years, the benefits of the day are invested in the manufacture of accessories, the dragon, costumes, etc. Last year, for example, it was the Car d’Or which was able to get a makeover. A Car d’Or which remained in excellent condition to return this year. For the rest, courses are given, ahead of the event, so that young people have full knowledge of the folklore and traditions dear to the people of Montois. All these people intend to do it again next year. In v’la co pou ein an!
