Besancon carnival, Dijon

Yesterday Besancon had a carnival, with lots of fun floats and confetti; best to leave this one to the pictures. Cars whose owners had ignored the parking suspension got covered in silly string making them look festive; but people were only covered with confetti which shakes off easily*1 *2.

I'm in a nice but out-of-town hostel in Dijon. The remainder of the afternoon was spent going round the Fine Arts Museum.

*1 Some floats had confetti cannons to provide more confetti if it was shaking off too easily.

*2 The crowd of kids chasing the final float got covered in foam too; but there was plenty of warning qnd a small area of effect.
