Cherry on the cake! The itinerant village of Equidays will set down its suitcases in Deauville on October 28 from 14 p.m. to 17 p.m. We have fun with the equestrian simulator, learn to horseback riding, learn country dance, let ourselves be guided in a horse-drawn carriage and discover the trades of the equine sector, from farriery to osteopathy. At 30 p.m., the Grande Parade will wander through the city center, with flyer Laurent Douziech as the headliner. A Batucada, waders, jugglers, dancers, musicians and pyrotechnic artists will mingle with equestrian artists to offer a unique show to the rhythm of percussions.

Go back to Jurassic times at the Paléospace

Live the experience of Normandy during the Jurassic era with the Paléospace de Villers-sur-Mer! This atypical museum invites you to go back 160 million years in time, when the sea completely covered the region. In the shoes of a paleontologist, explore the dinosaur room, where large carnivores and herbivores are revealed (Streptospondylus, Lexovisaurus…), then head to the Jurassic gallery to admire large skeletons and small fossils. Make a stop at the temporary exhibition "Croc '! Evolutionary History" dedicated to crocodiles. And for a 360 ° trip to the Milky Way, take a seat in its planetarium!

Get drunk on nature

Nearly thirty green spaces are spread across Deauville. Natural sites, parks, squares or gardens, they are all an opportunity to get away from it all and get some fresh air. You can let yourself go and stroll among the shaded alleys or along the rivers, relax sitting on a bench listening to the sound of the wind in the trees or the song of birds, observe there the local fauna and smell the plant species or share a family or friendly moment on a playground.
