The 14th July in France is known to be the national holiday in France and its firework, but not all the town and villages are doing it on the same day. Every city has its own launch date concerning the fireworks, and sometimes some of them are doing it during other major events.
As you guessed, Dol de Bretagne is one of the many city that does it this year. This time the major event appears to be a huge Fest-noz. But what is a Fest-noz you may ask? Actually, it is a typical Breton festival with singers and musicians, where everyone is invited! Everyone one can join the festival for free and be part, for one night, of the Breton brotherhood.
FIREWORKS AND GIANT FEST-NOZ
On the afternoon of the 28th will take place a huge Fest-Noz (traditional party from Brittany). You will have the occasion to dance and enjoy the celtic culture !
Then there will be a big firework in the evening to celebrate the event !
But that’s not all ! The day after (July 29) you will attend the “Saint Samson” Fest, which commemorates Saint Samson, the most famous bishop in Dol de Bretagne. For more info about the town check here.
