Battle of the Bands

March 15, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

The town of Mazères is in Ariège, part of the Midi-Pyrénées in south west France. 

We were staying nearby and had only called into town to visit the supermarket when we found this battle of the bands in progress. There were lots of town bands, lots of fun music, lots of drinks and a great number of happy people.
As far as we  could see, bands were going from one street to the next to play and then they all congregated together in the central market hall.

Eventually all the bands gathered together in the market square and took their turns playing.

I would like to have stayed a bit longer, but we had our children with us and they were more eager for the pool.
