France: May Festivals Of France
In the month of May, two amazing and very different festivals occur in France. the "Medieval Festival" in the Champagne-Ardenne region and the Gypsy Pilgrimage in Provence. The historical fortress town of Sedan is home to the Medieval Festival each year. Travel back in time in this huge castle complete with knights, ladies and even a medieval torture chamber. The locals compete in games for the honor of their neighborhood in this beautiful city. The Provence region, along the Mediterranean Sea, plays host to Gypsies from all over the world, who gather in the tiny city of Saintes-Maries-de-la Mer and take their patron Saint Sara through the narrow streets of this charming village and deliver her to the sea.
