banda Bandas :

Present throughout the Southwest, they are very implanted
in the Gers. If the origin of these bands is Spanish,
the banda has become a Gascon specificity, closely linked
to the festive spirit. It is difficult to imagine a party without these street bands playing for hours and wandering with
the “festayres”. When you hear and see them, you are immediately drawn into the pleasure of being together.
Everywhere in the Gers, village festivals, concerts, exhibitions, night markets, fleamarkets ... will distract you and seduce you.

"Course landaise"

Recognized by the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Landes race is part of the Gascon heritage.

A native of the Landes, it is also practiced in Gers. These are normally only cows that are used and there is no killing of the animal, during or after. But these cows are not at all placid, they are very combative, as acrobats that are spreaders and jumpers engage in genuine sporting achievements in this form of bullfighting. Show colorful, fun and guaranteed emotion at his course of music ... bandas!
