Défilé du char des Enclumes

Châteaurenard - Hameau de la Crau - Parade - Le 17 septembre à 11h

A l'entrée de l'automne, au moment des vendanges et des premières chasses, quand il fallait couper les cannes pour réaliser les abris de canisses, une dernière fête rassemblait les gens du pays. C'était là que se faisaient les nouvelles unions et parfois même les "enlèvements", quand les parents s'opposaient aux jeunes amoureux.

Le char des Enclumes défile depuis 1983 dans les rue du hameau de la Crau. En hommage à St Omer, évêque du Moyen-Age, ce char est garni de buis, cannes, fleurs et surmonté d'une gigantesque enclume. Il est précédé de groupes folkloriques.
