Limoux – it’s party time again!

For those of you who don’t know it – Limoux carnival goes on.. and on.. and on. The longest in the French calendar..

From the Midi-France site, there is lots of history…

“The typical village fête is held in late summer when the nights are still warm, and the crops and grapes have been harvested. But the annual fête in Limoux, is different in almost every respect. For a start it lasts not three days, but over two months; and not in summer but mid winter. It is the earliest and longest fête in the French calendar, starting in January and continuing until two weeks before Easter Sunday.”
