garde républicaineThe last major event of the feria, apart from the last corrida of course, was the parade of the orchestra of the Republigan Guard. Yes, the one that you can see normally (on TV) in Paris, on Bastille Day, for example.

We had already seen them perform at the Arènes the night before, and were so impressed that we came to see them again on Monday. And the parade was really magnificent – and for the first time I saw that the audience was marching along with the parade! All the way to the Jardins de la Fontaine. A superb ending for the feria.
