Arles - Centre ville - Provençal Tradition - Dates and program to be confirmed - Free
Symbol of Arles in celebration: the entire city participates in this passo carriero (parade) in suit leading to the arenas for a grand finale. Families, groups, young or old, all await this moment where is found the favorable soul. Gardians, traditional in the city and elsewhere, children, groups... almost a thousand costumes and all Arles in the street for this exceptional evening. The best and the most beautiful evenings to really know the city. Texts attest practice from 1830, but the Pegoulado, spontaneous or not, is probably older. For festive, political or other reasons (passage of the railway, inauguration of the Pont de Trinquetaille), population came out in the street and walked there.
