This is an annual event that has become very well known and attract many folks. We have come here but never on festival time as thought would be too crowded ,and it was! However, we took the plunge on a nice Sunday and visit while the Festival de la Photo de La Gacilly was on, and will be until October 21th 2020.

I like to tell you a bit more on La Gacilly, in my lovely Morbihan , beautiful Morbihan and belle France! The town of La Gacilly is the home of the famous cosmetic firm Yves Rocher labs .La Gacilly is 13 km from Redon, 49 km from Vannes, 51 km from Rennes and 75 km from Nantes. It is about an hour from my house.

The La Gacilly Photo Festival is a photography festival that takes place annually from early June to October in La Gacilly. Founded in 2003, it takes place outdoors and access is free. The works of international photographers adorn the walls of the homes, alleys and gardens of La Gacilly. Each year, a geographic area and a theme are highlighted. Visitors benefit by walking through the village, where the walls and gables turn into photographic supports, as well as in the small woods, gardens or marshes near the village, along the Aff. All these places become exhibition galleries

The largest outdoor Photo Festival in France. The Festival invades all the streets of the town, revealing images in giant format, exposed outdoors. Of course, my photo skills are still rudimentary lol! This year the guest of honor was Viva Latina! or arts from Latin America; very much love by yours truly and it was a blast to show it to my boys.
