Fête Votive

On Monday, Aug. 15 was the ‘Fête Votive,’ a local holiday and  festival  that celebrates the traditions of the Bouche-de-Rhone and the town of Maussane (http://www.maussanelesalpilles.fr/spip.php?rubrique8). Included were a large feast (called ‘Aioli’), and La Course de Taureaux (‘Running of the Bulls’), where bulls were chased up and down the street by men and women on horseback. It took place right outside the restaurant and was quite a busy day. Pretty cool.
