The most famous of the village festivals returns, place at the Fête de la Moule!
Pétanque, aperitif, mussels and fries, a very fresh rosé at sunset, concert, DJ, what more could you want!

Free, under parental supervision.
- 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. (while waiting for the Brasucade service): No pétanque without aperitif, especially after having aligned the tiles in place. It is the greatest artist from Marseille, Le Muge Knight who will explain the real aperitif to you.
Provençal quiz and international blind test with Pedro. Tasting the mussels over a wood fire deserves a little patience, the crazy blogger will save you glasses and lots of gifts! Free.

- From 7 p.m .: Brasucade!
Unheard of in the region, the flames attract the eyes of tourists and the smell opens your taste buds. Menu at 10 euros! : wood-fired mussels + fries + drink (by the glass) + ice cream. No reservation, arrive early!

- From 9 p.m. to 1 a.m .: concert and DJ evening.
The rest of the evening will be hosted by Bobzilla (10:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.).
If we had to sum up the night in Marseille from the early 80s to now in one word, it would be: BOB.

The figures: 1,200 kg of mussels, 600 l of rosé wine, 500 kg of fresh fries and 50 volunteers.
