Despite the drop in temperature on Saturday evening, D and I headed to Place Massena for the Corso Illuminé. The parade was scheduled to start at 9:30 pm by which time it was cold enough to warrant digging out our winter coats.
D and I settled in our seats and I took a look around. Place Massena was jam-packed and the place in front of the stores were filled as well.
I must admit that we enjoyed the Corso Illuminé more than the Bataille de Fleurs. Perhaps it was the setting or maybe we were just dazzled by all the lights. Either way, it was fun. I’ve included some of my pictures below.
Can you identify the faces represented on the floats in three of the pictures below?
