The festival of lights in Lyon :
This event take place on December 6 to December 9 of each year in Lyon. It’s a religious celebration related to Mary. Every night, the city present lot off animations with lights. The festival draws 3 to 4 million people.

The national day in Paris :
Even if I live in a small village, I like this day. I can see 3 fireworks from my house and after there is a party outside.
The festival : « Les vieilles Charrues »
If you want to see concerts in France, you have to go in Bretagne (Carhaix-Plouguer) during 4 days in July. It is the bigger festival of music in France (with 250 000 festival-goer). This year, Pharell Williams, Lana Del Rey and Major Lazer were present.
Unfortunately, I never went in this festival because it’s far and each year I go in Musilac at the same period. Musilac it’s also a big festival in Aix-Les-Bains (around Swiss). It’s my favorite moment of the year !
Lemon festival « fête du citron » in Menton
It’s not a joke ! The city of Menton organized this festival since 1934 (after the winter) and now, there is 230 000 visitors each year. Before this, It was a famous carnival.
The city is animated during 17 days and it requires 145 tonnes of citrus fruits ! It’s difficult to explain this event because it’s totally unique. This is an international event to see with a lot of animations.
The Cannes festival
Even if you are not passioned by the cinema, this festival is very interesting. International artists are present to hope for have a price : best movie, best artist, best film maker...
