Festival of St. Peter - Menton

During our short visit to Menton, France, we were exploring the quiet square outside of Saint-Michel Church. Out of nowhere, the bells started to chime and people began flooding out of the church doors wearing traditional maritime attire, carrying a plinth with a statue of Jesus on.

It was only once we'd managed to sit down for lunch that were able to work out that we'd managed to stumble across The Festival of St. Peter - a celebration of the sea, beginning with Mass before a procession down to the seafront.

All of these images probably won't make it into my ongoing France project, so I decided to share them here on my blog.
