Bastille Day Repas du Village

July 14th is arguably the most important French holiday and obviously unique to France. It sees the biggest annual event in the village, an evening meal with music for several hundred Aspiranaises. While technically on evening of the 13th, eating, drinking and dancing span well into the big day.

This year tradition was broken and the event moved from the village square, the Place de Peyrou by the church and Mairie, to the Pétanque pitch. Undoubtedly controversial, the new location affords a better layout with improved lighting and facilities.
