SATURDAY 18TH MAY 2013

 

FESTIVAL OF THE BANDAS

Céret Cherry Festival

 

Céret still has it all going on this weekend, but without quite as many cherries around as usual.

Despite the postponing of the Céret cherry festival until the first weekend in June, there will be a communal meal in Place de la Liberté on Saturday evening, that will feature some cherry dishes, and those ancient walls will still vibrate and throb to the beat of the  Bandas festival. 

Cherry flags are already being hung around the town, giving that cherry feel, and the weekend is being marketed as both bandas and the “first of the cherries,” even though the official cherry festival will take place in two weeks time.
