An Ain Folk Festival Outside the Church of Brou
"Why We Were There"
We came to Bourg-en-Bresse only to visit the Royal Monastery and Church of Brou, a suburb at the SE edge of town (pop. 44K). The only other activities that we indulged in were to eat lunch in front of a fine restaurant where we watched the opening ceremonials and performance of folk dancing as part of a month long celebration of Ain culture that devolved in front of the church.
