Undoubtedly THE best firework display I have ever ever seen and these photos can not do it justice. To get here we followed a convoy of cars to find the last parking spots in Carcassonne (The city was blocked off by the 70,000 people who visit here every year!) Cars were even parked on roundabouts and in the middle of roads. We sat in a field up behind the old city and had brilliant seats (for free!) It started with the sunset

And then we sat jaws wide open for the most incredible displays I have ever seen – and the crowd were speechless, it was an amazing site to behold

They had planet shaped fireworks and heart and lip shaped it was incredible and all choreographed wonderfully.

This year I am definately going to make the effort and go into the town itself and watch it from the best possible viewing point.

I still (at time of writing ) have two gites available if you would like to come and see this (and join in the village’s own festivities with fireworks the night before AND watch the Tour de France pass by a nearby village!)

For now I will leave you with this video
