Les Filets Bleus (Blue Fishing Nets) Concarneau

Over a hundred years old, the Filets Bleus festival takes place every August, when it gives the town of Concarneau and its inhabitants an opportunity to go back to their roots. A typically Breton-flavoured costumed parade, with dancing and games. It started in the quays of Concarneau were covered in blue sardine-fishing nets that have since given their name to this festival. In 1905, hard times hit the fishing industry and the inhabitants of Concarneau decided to pull together by creating the Filets Bleus. Website: http://www.festivaldesfiletsbleus.bzh/
