A Taste of Tradition

This is the weekend that Cadrieu celebrates! Saturday afternoon found several teams on the petanque field in serious competition. At 6pm the village gathered for an aperitif and music with a dance beginning at 10:30pm, Yes, that's correct...first you drink and nibble on frites and sausages for 4+ hours; then there's a dance! I didn't stay for that, but rumors are those that did arrived home at 3am. Actually, people began dancing when this group began playing early in the evening. I love this traditional Occitan music! There were many toes tapping.
