It is understandable that so many events and fêtes across France have been cancelled this Summer due to the Covid 19 epidemic and the difficulty of social distancing during such an event. Therefore it has come has a complete surprise to hear from reliable sources that Daglan will be hosting its annual fête this year.
It will be a slimmed down version to be held in the Salle de Fêtes car park. However it unfortunately seems that if the giant truck carrying the bumper cars cannot manoeuvrer into the area behind the Salle de Fêtes they will be sited once again in the Place de la Liberté at the heart of the village, which is always a problem for people living around the village centre due to the loud music which is played at full volume until two in the morning every night.
We of course will be self isolating during the fête as will so many of the local people. So no promotion or pictures of the event this year. Lets just hope that everyone follows the social distancing rules, wears a mask and that everything is disinfected after each use.
Are we right in believing that the fête should not be held this year due to the current need to keep COVID-19 under control?
I would love to hear your comments.
