The cavalcade of La Rochelle, Summer Carnival

The Cavalcade of La Rochelle is an annual festival organized every summer at the beginning of June. This event features beautifully decorated floats that criss-cross the main streets of the city, followed by the "carnival people" and troops of musicians.

Fanfares, music and dance and a large funfair are on the programme in the old port of La Rochelle.

Not forgetting Miss La Rochelle and her dolphins whose chariot is eagerly awaited.

Cavalcade of La Rochelle attracts thousands of visitors.
