Photographer's Note

Last year I posted 2 pictures of the carnaval with the gilles. Now, you have to know that the gilles are not dancing only during the carnaval. In my town, there are also 2 other saturdays before the carnaval where they are dancing with their music in the street. Yesterday was the first one and the event is called "soumonces en batterie". As you can see, their clothes are not the same than the gilles costum but there is already the "apertintaille" (girdles with the small bells) and the "ramon" (the blured stick).
In 2 weeks, it will be the "soumonces générales"... To be continued...
