Disneyland (the original) is in California. Walt Disney World (the huge one) is in Florida. And Disneyland Paris is, well, near Paris. But who really needs them, when our village becomes Disney Daglan on Sunday, August 21?
Okay, the entire village is not being made over. But Disney Daglan has just been advertised as the theme of the parade that we know as the highlight of the three-day Fête de la Saint-Louis, otherwise known (in Radio Free Daglan) as the Festival of Heat and Noise.
Loyal readers, and local residents, may remember that in the 2021 edition of the festival, there was no parade at all. But it seems that the late-afternoon parade is back on, and it will be interesting to see how big the parade is, and how creative and elaborate the entries are. During this infernal heat wave, I can’t imagine that decorating a trailer or tractor to look like something that the Disney people created would be any fun.
In any case, here’s the poster advertising this year’s festival, placed on the front window of our village’s convenience store:
Maybe the temperature will have dropped a bit by the 21st, because right now the heat is beyond unpleasant. If nothing else, Jan and I can watch the late-evening fireworks on Sunday (Grand Feu d’Artifice) from the comfort of our bedroom window.
