Feux de la Saint-Jean
SAINT JOHN’S EVE BONFIRES
Pagan societies used to celebrate fertility during the summer solstice. In Mons, the bonfires re-emerged on 23rd June 1990 and have not stopped since!
Parades at the sound of drums cross the City to announce the creative participations of the towns from the Grand Mons region (Grand Huit) and the lighting of a bonfire on the Place Nervienne.
Action initiée par l’asbl Feux de la Saint-Jean. Associé pour l’occasion au Grand Huit.
