You can see how the dwarfs which have to thrown confettis on the (big... big.... ) crowd, are happy to see somebody which can be thrown with confettis.

98. A witch.

Here is a witch. You know, by the Mi-Carême the witches are chased away and come on Haloween again. Because in spring and summer all people are in the streets and they can see the witches, so that they cannot stay without be seen. If they do not want to be burnt, they must go for the Brülage des Bosses.

93. The two statues 2 : Jeanjean and I.

You can see the two statues (I and Jeanjean) are at the same place as on the other picture, but it is not the same picture because the children changed their places.
This photo is exceptionnaly not made by me, but by my husband Paul, with my camera.

92.. Dew Pearl and Jean-jean as statues 1

As I was young I looked so (on the right on the picture -click on the word so) and my name could be Dew Pearl. Now I look like on this picture above fat and old (middle old). The glasses especially with their dark sun glasses don't make me very pretty, but so is it. We are growing old.

80.Another bareer.

Here is the street to Bavay. It is the main road. On which at the end of the feast a fire shall be made. The main road leads from Aulnoye-Aymeries to Bavay, the roman town. This road is all straight, during 8 km, because it is an old roman way. On this part it has a North-South direction. I think it was the way from Bavay which had something like 6 or 8 roman way to Lugdunum (Lyon) or to Trier (Trevira).

85. A bareer on the street to Bavay.

Here is the street to Bavay.

84. A feast ambiance in the town

Now you can look at the same balls from the far... They are placed at the entrance of a farm.

83. Three balls bound on a wall.

To give a feast ambiance to the town some air-balls are bound at the walls of the houses.
Perle de Rosée.

82. Empty streets..

This is a view like the other before but it is seen from not so far, so that you can see the bareer and the policeman better. Here in this street there are often many cars and much noise. But not at the day of the Mi-Carême.
Perle de Rosée.

81. The street to Maubeuge is also closed.

Here is the town district of Quartes, with the church. It is the same church you can see with its large back above the river on the other photos. But from the side it looks not so large. At the end of the street, you can see another bareer with a man in the middle. We do not see it here very well, but it is a policeman.

80. A barreer to protect the center of the town.

I've got a film that I took before the feast of the Mi-Carême of Pont-sur-Sambre. I took this photos as I was going to the Carnival. Paul thought the defile was on another side of the town and we made a longer way as we had to do normally, so that we came a little to late for the beginning, but we saw some things along the way which were not like usually.
Here this barreer protect the center of the town of the cars. So that the street are all empty. It is very calm then. And it looks like in the past centuries as there were no cars!. The ambiance of the town is then different, it is not so busy, there is no loud noise, it gives a melancolic ambiance which the town do not have normally.
