Ste Maries de la Mer

Has anyone attended the gypsy festival there in May? Any suggestions?

While we have not attended the May pilgrimage celebrating Mary, the mother of St. James, we have been at the October pilgrimage, and it was awesome! If you intend to be in the area in late May, I urge you to check it out, as late May is a time when gypsies gather in the camargue, and there is also an annual celebration of Camargue traditions, including running of the bulls.

I have been at the May festival several times and loved it.

AlpillesGal - was there lots of live music at the October pilgrimmage or is that specific to May?

My recollection, altough it was 15+ years ago, is that there was lots of live music at the October pilgrimage. I suspect that the May festival is much the same - if you go, please post regarding your experience.
