Synonymous with magic, on the one hand dreams and the desire to forget everyday troubles, the festive period opens this weekend in Greoux-les-Bains, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, with the illumination of the city and the Christmas market.
Illuminations do not only make this brief moment when the streets, buildings, candelabras are decorated with luminous draperies, they sparkle. It is also this friendly and warm moment, offered by the Community Center and the association of parents of students, which gathers young and old during a parade with lanterns that winds through the streets of the village to end with wine and hot chocolate.
Organized Christmas fair Official board of the festival, in partnership with the municipality and local associations, is another opportunity to get together, take a walk in the most festive atmosphere. It brings together, on the Place de l’Hôtel de Ville and its surroundings, about twenty exhibitors and includes the same number of merchants from the old village. The Gréoux-les-Bains Christmas market, open on Saturday, December 3, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., offers as many traditional or unusual gift ideas as it does festive meal suggestions. It also promises everyone, children and adults who still want to believe in it, great encounters with Santa Claus.
Illumination and the Christmas Fair, two great moments of socializing that should not be missed under any circumstances.
