Bathed in spring sunshine the Judgement of Pétassou was performed by the children of three local Primary Schools. In true Carnival spirit the beating of a drum is heard in the distance as the Carnival begins to meander its way through the streets of Daglan.
Pétassou is placed onto the trailer towed behind the decorated tractor which leads the procession.
Children follow the tractor in their amazing costumes which show the various cultures of the world.
So cute and gorgeous.
Helped along by the teachers and parents.
Cowboys, Native Americans, Spanish etc.
Time to sing and dance and ward off evil spirits for another year.
Pétassou is then placed onto the bonfire for his sins. Winter is gone, Spring is here and good times are ahead.
Events at Castlenaud-6th April to the 5th May. Guided tour and firing of the trebuchet and new this year, the shooting of the cross bow. Plus, face to face with an arquebusier of the Religious War. Both offensive and defensive equipment of an arquebusier.

So forget Brexit and come and have fun and enjoyment in the Perigord.
