Things to do in the Languedoc:   Cultural Activities:   The Limoux Fécos (Carnival or Carnaval) -
Photographs 2008:   Monte Cristo - Nuit de la Blanquette - 9th March 2008



The King of the Carnival, and in 2008 his new bride (no relation to the President and his new wife), are brought down to the square and prepared for their trial.


The Judge, Prosecution, Defence and Executioner appear.


They procede to the trial, the Pierros having removed their hats.



A Guilty Verdict is returned. The sentence is burning.


The Trial and Execution are over for another year. It is time to celebrate the coming Spring.
