Festival of Giants, France

July 1

During the first weekend in July, the north of France celebrates Fêtes de Gayant (Festival of Giants).

Most northern cities have a patron giant that is said to protect the city and its people. Carried through the streets, these giants are made of wood and measure between six and eight and a half meters in length (20 to 25 ft).
