Bastid'art, with clowns and accordions, bien sûr!

Last weekend was Miramont de Guyenne's 19th annual Bastid'art. A miniature three-day version of Reno's Artown, the arts festival featured international music, dance, theater, and circus/acrobatic acts, most of them free.

We stopped by for a few hours on Sunday and caught some of the entertainment.

As an aside, after several years of helping produce Artown's Little Book, I can appreciate the work that went into the Bastid'art handy guide. Bien fait!
