    It is not a tradition of the city but falls into it more and more. There were years that nothing was done but the tradition of the east of France is becoming more and more taken on the whole.

    Quimper, has a very small act on the scene. There is normally a carrousel in the place de corantin near the Cathedral, and a stand selling churros, chichis, croustillons with hot wine.

    this year they had a huge ice skating ring by the cathedral and next to the carrousel in front of the hotel de ville or city hall. Lots of youngsters were there early and by the time we came back in the afternoon a line has form to get in so it has become very popular.

    Other than that just lots of decoration in the stores, and lighting on the Streets but not much else. For now.

    This is the highlight of the visit or any ride the poneys at rue saint François, near the covered market on the way from the cathedral, nice, just a great feeling, recommended for the entire family.

    Walking these wonderful streets and seeing the local way of life is the best way to travel, come in and let me show you Bretagne, or Breizh or Brittany.

    Bagpipe player

    If you're lucky, you can see some men that are really good playing traditional european instrument with bagpipe that sound really good. They walk along the city street, and we can see their performace at the park near the cathedral and mairie de Quimper. Worth to see!
