D-Day celebrations on 6th June

Hi folks - I've just been to Normandy and was told that on the 6th June each year most of the Normandy villages / towns in the invasion area have some sort of celebration on. I'm planning on going back next year over 6th June, and wondered if there's anywhere I can find out what's on where and at what time? Ideally I'd like to go to St Mere Eglise and Pegasus Bridge on the 6th but not sure how to find out if there are official ceremonies taking place and at what time (so I can see if it's feasible to get to both).

Any advice would be great!

There's a parashoot drop near Ste Mere Eglise on the 5th. I believe it was cancelled this year.

Ther are ceremonies on the 6th at Ste Mere Eglise, Arromanches, Pegasus bridge. Ther are different events in several towns on different dates in June. You need to check on times in the spring.

This is a link to some of the events, but you would need to google around to find more - probably (when googgling) focus on the main towns as cpmac suggests Ste Mere Eglise, Arromanches etc
