Les fêtes Foraines - Carnivals and Fun fairs French Vocabulary

Each summer, roving carnivals/ fun fairs seize the villages of la campagne française (French countryside). Children love it, adults are usually a bit mad at all the mess it brings (limited parking, noise etc…). They usually last for about a week, and come for special dates, very often around the Quatorze Juillet (AKA La Fête Nationale, but never referred to as "le jour de la Bastille"), but sometimes also take place around the town's Saint patron day.
