The Angers 2012 carnival edition is on way

The Angers carnival, which will celebrate this year its 20t anniversary, is due to take place on March Saturday 31st with the great parade in down town. In order to give a specific dimension to the event, a lot of workshops are planned in all the districts of Angers city in March. In these gatherings in Belle-Beille, Lac de Maine, La Doutre, Les Justices and Les Hauts de Saint-Aubin districts, inhabitants will prepare costumes, wigs and floats while others will repeat their music themes and their danses.

The previous edition was tinged with policy : a float cartooning the president of the French republic (what is no objectionable by itself) was accompanied by a disagreable title what was close to a discriminatory criticism and disrespectful to his office (Finally justice ordered the withdrawal of the float). In a presidential election year, it is not ruled out that similar "excitement" be organized.

 Parades with inhabitants on stilts may be predicted because workshops will initiate people to wal in such a way. In Angers the event signals the end of winter and associate a lot of people. Disctricts of Angers demonstrate their team spirit and their creativeness. The end of the carnival will be celebrated at Ligny Quay through a giant choreography. A final rehearsal is scheduled on March 24th.
