Last Saturday, near home, the city of Gières organized a spectacle to celebrate the end of winter and the beginning of spring.
A local artist created a huge leprechaun representing the winter.
A local troop of jugglers, "les Lutins Farceurs", gave a representation after sunset. Their make-up was very well made, they looked half-elves half-daemons.
Kids were both frightened and in amazement looking at them, especially when they were jumping using stilts and going incredibly high with them.
Once the Lutins Farceurs ended their representation, the Leprechaun was burnt to celebrate the end of winter.
The spectacle was great but it was untimely to celebrate the end of winter: it was snowing again this morning.
Spring will have to wait a bit more to come... :)
