Fête de la Saint Pierre
Saint Pierre is the patron saint of fishermen, and the family-friendly resort of Saint Raphael still pays their respects, recalling the days when this was a simple fishing village. The morning begins with a mass and a procession from the old port. Then comes lunch, an anchoïa?de, aka grilled anchovy feast served outdoors to a crowd of thousands dining elbow to elbow over a simple, yet succulent, meal. Feeling fortified, the fishermen set to sea, teams of oarsmen jousting against one another until a winner is announced. After sunset the fireworks begin, followed by a ball to cap off the celebrations.
