It's the Summer Solstice and in France that means music.
Every city, and nearly every village, is celebrating with the fête de la musique.
We were in Perpignan yesterday and they handed out a brochure with several bands playing in many different squares.
Here in our village of Quillan, we'll be gathering in the Place de la République (after the France World Cup soccer game) to enjoy some mystery music.
According to Le Parisien online newspaper, the music throughout the country. could be a band, a chorus, or even a DJ set.
I think it's delightful that the entire country is filled with music on this the longest day of the year.
I've been working to get papers graded all day so I can enjoy the concert with abandon.
Check later tonight (or maybe tomorrow morning) and I'll finish this post with my thoughts on this longest day of the year.
