Festival du Jeu @ Vals les Bains

Every year the spa town of Vals les Bains (about 10 mins drive from us) would host a Festival du Jeu (festival of games) so basically turning the park into a huge playground. It's all free & everyone is encouraged to participate, play & have fun. I went there last year & made sure to go again this year. Last Sunday, I made a date with my new friend Katia & in the end, met up with her parents & friends who all spoke English (yippee!) & had a blast.



What are they looking at ?



This natural geyser that sprouts water regularly every 6 hours. One can never be sure but apparently at 5.30pm was time for the show. Unfortunately we were rewarded with a brief sprout of not more than 20 cms.

So on to the park we go



There were many games & toys for children





Who can resist ?



Pony rides but The Girl was quite happy just to pet them



Games from all over the world



Something for everyone & all ages



By the way, I came across this video of the festivities but can't seem to embed it on the blog. So if you're interested to see it live, click here.
