Féte Saint Pierre - the Mentonnais Dancers

The Mentonnais Folk Dancers are an important part of the day - a great group and all having such a good time.

In the Old Town of Menton there is a building you can visit that has displays of life exactly as it once was in Menton, including figures dressed in the original clothes - of which these are copies, of course.

'It takes an endless amount of history to make even a little tradition.'

~ Henry James
