Festival of what? Corn and ale? ;-)

Sure is a fancy headdress. Must have some kind of meaning. Looks a bit like a priest who got his stole on backward.

@ Jacob: nothing to do with a priest, just the way people dressed until the beginning of the 20th century in Brittany.

Thanks Ciel, I was wondering here about the event, I love that hat and all beautiful artwork, I imagine it's difficult to create, imagine the right colours and design.
Beautiful shot!

I have to add that it would have been their 'Sunday best'.

I think the people of Brittany have a very interesting culture and history. It's a place that a really want to see.

A fascinating costume! The fall of the material from the hat looks as if it symbolises some kind of status! Beautiful colours!

I'll leave a wee comment on this page in particular as I've been to Quimper - we were quite amazed to find a Rue de Falkirk there (Falkirk was our nearest big town at the time). Lovely pictures and very random, unless that is you are zig zagging across Europe and the World on a daily basis.
