Les Mardis Nocturnes D’Uzes

Follow on Bloglovin

There’s a party going on every Tuesday night, right under my window. I’m not complaining. It’s vendors with jewelry, leather goods, wine and, of course, there are musicians.

Nothing compares with the Saturday or Wednesday markets  in Uzes. Yet these Tuesday events, clearly for tourists, have the added attraction of a nighttime ambiance in the Place des Duche.

The event runs from 6-11pm and starts off with Zumba.

The Zumba sessions are led by a local class and visitors are welcome to join in.

Soon the marketplace is busy with people.  By night it’s loud and filled with music and happy sounds.

Later, musicians take center stage at the Mairie (town hall).
