French Holiday – Avignon (Part 4)

French Holiday – Avignon (Part 4)

This is the last part of my holiday in Avignon. It was my last full day in Avignon, and one of my favourite days in the whole holiday! The whole day had a wonderful atmosphere, as it was the day where they had re-enactments and parades marking the 71st anniversary of the liberation of Avignon after World War II.

This was my favourite part of the whole day. After a drink in the restaurant we watched the band play songs from the era. Everyone crowded around and began to dance to the jazz music. It was amazing to be there and just watch it all happen! Unfortunately my videos aren’t uploading quite right at the moment, but I am hoping on getting it to work soon, as I have some lovely clips of the performance;

And then, of course the night had to end with a bang (quite literally), with fireworks by the Rhone River. Bt we didn’t have to walk all of the way down there to enjoy them, we could get cosy and watch then from our balcony! It was so beautiful, and the best send off from the amazing city of Avignon!!
