CARNAVAL au Pays du Mont-Blanc!

It’s that time of year when the little ones (and bigger ones) get dressed up (or refuse to, as my boys systematically did for a couple of years!) and take to the streets of our local towns and villages au Pays du Mont-Blanc (and beyond) to release their inner Rio de Janeiro dancing & musical energy!

Here is what is on au Pays du Mont-Blanc (in chronological order):

Plateau d’Assy

RDV: La Mutuelle, for the departure of the carnaval with musical instruments, percussion, whistles . . .  followed by goûter (carnaval and goûter organised by l’Amicale Laïque des écoles du Plateau d’Assy) / more information: 06 83 01 25 59 or;


What?  face-painting, cake sale, parade, Zumba Kids . . . for profit of APE!

Saint-Gervais-les-Bains had to cancel the original carnaval a few weeks back, due to copious rain . . . so let’s hope this second attempt yields better weather (the MJC says it has ordered some sun this time!)
