Living France - - Découvrez -

No mat­ter how many high-tech games, spe­cial-ef­fects films or tech­no­log­i­cal gad­gets that come along, some­times you just can’t beat the ap­peal of tra­di­tional en­ter­tain­ment from days gone by, and what could be more charm­ingly nos­tal­gic than watch­ing a pup­pet show? The in­ter­na­tional event,

Mima Arts de la Mar­i­on­nette held ev­ery year in the me­dieval town of Mire­poix in Ariège lives up to peo­ple’s


ex­pec­ta­tions for an after­noon of quaint en­ter­tain­ment plus pup­pet shows on a larger, show-stop­ping scale. The event that runs from 4-7 Au­gust is as pop­u­lar with adults as it is with chil­dren, and there is much more en­ter­tain­ment to be en­joyed when the cur­tains go down such as face paint­ing, mu­sic and street per­for­mances. A fam­ily pass costs €16 and chil­dren un­der three go free.
