A very short blog post so you can view the parade.
Sandy and I took a little trip to the Paramé section of Saint-Malo last Sunday, July 7. We watched the 2019 Folklores du Monde parade. It was quite nice. Most of the groups from outside of France had only a couple of musical instruments as they are mainly dance groups. The French groups from around Brittany have a very Celtic theme and are marching bands. Many bagpipes, drums and small pipes.
We recorded most of the groups and put together a video of the parade. You can view the video by clicking on the link below. The video is about 9 minutes and 30 seconds in length. The video will open in a new window in your browser.

Thanks for sharing your video !! Love the bagpipes and know they take a lot of breath. Costumes beautiful and sharing their proud culture with you. Gorilla funny with cigar and making a seat !! Love the wooden toys and the children so cute !! I’m back home. Hot here but not the humidity as in DC.
Glad you liked the video. It was a bit of an experiment. Bye for now.
Thanks for sharing. I didn’t know there was a “piping” tradition in France. Of course with the history of English involvement in the region I guess it makes sense.
