Mi-Carême (mid-Lent) festival in Catus

The Mi-Carême is a tradition that goes back to medieval times and is widely celebrated in many parts of France, with the participants dressed in a variety of festive costumes.

On Saturday the local school organised the Mi-Carême festival in Catus. Residents of the village and surrounding areas were dressed in colourful costumes and paraded around the village accompanied by lively music and dancing to celebrate mid-Lent, the half-way mark of abstinence before Easter.
