A bit like the Betz le Chateau's 'banana party' the village of Le Petit-Pressigny's 'Fete d'automme' which goes under the heading of 'l'art et lard' had intrigued me. So off Pauline and I went yesterday to see what it was all about. It consists of a food market ( marche gourmond) and arts & crafts market (marche artisanal), with the art being displayed in the homes and gardens of the locals - which is a great idea for someone like me who can appreciate the houses as well !
The drizzly start to the morning meant a damp start to the festivities with the bouncy castle remaining deflated along with the atmosphere.
These types of Loire Valley events rely on fair weather conditions and the efforts of the village deserved better - hopefully it would improve as the day went on.
The most interesting (?) display Pauline and I found was by Coco Texedre - with her show of 'pants' (hence the title) in various forms of art media.
We are blessed here in the Loire Valley and France with the way these type of events are supported - long may they continue.
