The vagaries of the weather in recent weeks have disturbed me quite a bit. Is it summer or not? If officially, his birthday is June 20 (I launch the debate June 20 / 21 or not?), the events in Lyon have already put on their sunglasses and taken out the light summer shirts.
Everything is done to already have a holiday feeling between open-air concerts, open-air workshops, snack bars and hot dog stands. So like every week, we have drawn from the events in Lyon and the surrounding area to give ideas for your weekend at the gates of summer (and between a visit to the polling station)!
