So while I’d been keeping a low profile and not doing a lot, Bize was at the height of its summer events season. One thing after another really – starting off with the annual freestyle motorbike event, held on the dry river bed and using the purpose-built dirt mound.
This year, there were quite a few temporary bars and stands set up at the edges of the river - this event is becoming quite a drawcard for the town.
Then the following day – Bastille Day / 14th July celebrations, followed by fireworks at the river.
All the usual stalls, ethnic dancers and singers, and lots of food and drink, followed by a long night of bands / very loud music.
The annual aioli-making competition
The judging table
Yawns / long day!
And now the village has returned to normal (for this time of year) – lots of holiday makers here for the school / summer holidays, enjoying the hot weather and making good use of the pool at the river.
