Fêtes de la Madeleine

They are placed under the patronage of Saint Marie Madeleine (Mary Magdalene), whose statue is carried in procession from the Church of Madeleine to the chapel of the Plumaçon arena.

 

However, the beginning of the festival is officially marked by the ceremony of the handing over the keys by the mayor to the young people of the city on Wednesday afternoon, on the steps of the town hall of Mont-de-Marsan.

 

The night before, the arena hosts its first show: the traditional course landaise, an ancient form of bullfighting.
