Happy Fireman Day

On Saturday, popping down to buy some chocolate (for the boys you understand) I was comfronted by this rather strange sight. It is not everyday that you come across a brass band in the middle of a small town in the Vendee.

It turned out that it was Chavagnes turn to hold the Happy Fireman day celebrations.

Of course it was not officially called Happy Fireman Day - but I think it should be. But how wonderful it is that these guilds (for want of a better word) are celebrated by society and take pride in their identity.
