It's Cool Where I Live Because...

Two days out of every year, some time near the end of August, you get to see the locals dressed up as kings, queens, and knights;as travelling musicians,
and even as beggars.

They come out as all kinds of personalities, medieval-style, celebrating Les Fêtes de La Saint Louis. From where I live, Aigues Mortes, Louis IX launched the seventh and eighth Crusades. If you want a history lesson, this is not the place for it, sorry; but if you want to sort of be there with me, I've got plenty of pictures to share from the medieval parade a few weeks ago:
