On yearly Bastille Day, the real celebrations take place at their Firemen's Balls: a 100+ years ago tradition. Main fire stations would welcome you in their courtyard with music, dancing, and drinking such as sparkling wines, beers and other delicious wines. The parties attract all kind of people whom families with babies. The balls look like guinguettes: they are convivial, popular and fun.
Unfortunately, on 14/07/2021 all the firemen's balls were cancelled due to COVID restrictions.
