The weekend of the 14/15/16th December is a great time to come to Epernay, where the Christmas street party takes place on the Avenue de Champagne. Usually, not many of the big champagne houses on the Avenue are open to the public, but on this weekend, they all are! And not only are they open, you are invited to join in, with champagne flowing, food to go, live music, fun and fireworks. If you’ve never been to Epernay for this brilliant event, then put it in your diary for 2012.
The “Habits de Lumiere” event (which literally means “dressed in lights”) is where the Avenue de Champagne is lit up like Disneyland, with even a Disney-esque procession and spectacular fireworks on the Friday night, cooking demonstrations and champagne and food matching on Saturday, and a vintage car procession on Sunday.
Thousands of locals flock to the event, and you should be there too! Put it in your diary, and we’ll meet you there!
