Les gilles
the carnival troop

Le Gille is a famous character from the Binche carnival in Belgium. The troop will bring their colors and good humor to parade through the streets of Villers-sur-Mer.
36 Gilles and 20 peasant women will be present during the weekend to bring in a carnival air and celebrate the scallop season.

Before the parade, the traditional Gilles stuffing with straw will be open to the public at Villare!

Sunday, strolls at 11 a.m., 13 p.m., 14 p.m. and 30 p.m.

The Big Blues
waders wandering

These colorful waders are very visual characters. They welcome the public as returning from a long journey.

They sing to the tune of Bella Ciao, the beauty of the sirens and the grandeur of the captains. There is an accent which gives them an air of comedia del arte.

Saturday, strolls at 12:15 p.m. and 15:15 p.m. and Sunday at 10:30 a.m., 14 p.m. and 16 p.m.

Piratoria
wandering pirates

These three filibusters are looking for their crew ... To attract the suitors to this epic, they blow the percussions, ignite the sky by spitting flames and twirl the torches and the sabers ...

Saturday, wanderings at 13 p.m. and 16:15 p.m.

Pock-Pock Blues
funk / jazz fanfare

Small size but big volume! The three of them are capable of deploying a tremendous sound and stage presence and taking the public into their world.
If the look is a big nod to the blues brothers and soul music, the repertoire also visits more extensive regions, ranging from jazz, funk, even rumba, pop and film music.

Sunday, strolls at 11:30 a.m. (official parade), 13:30 p.m. and 15:30 p.m.

Dromaludaries
humorous fanfare

The dromaludary is an imaginary animal of the family of camelulids, commonly called "dromedary with glasses" or "torch with a hump".

He is also a funny musician, funny, playful and who does not lack air to blow in his biluniou.

The fanfare of acoustic musicians will delight young and old with the diversity of its repertoire and its energy.

Saturday, strolls at 10:30 a.m., 15:15 p.m. and 17:15 p.m.
