Family Beach Party

The family beach party is always held on the first Saturday of July from noon to 4:00 p.m. at Vale Perkins Beach. It is postponed to the following day in case of rain. Free activities and barbecue for all.

This year, the party was held on Sunday, July 7th. About a hundred people responded to the invitation of the Municipality. In addition to the traditional “Polish sausages-corn” meal, some have taken advantage of Kila Productions’ world music workshops, while others have been introduced to the paddle board with Uni-Sup instructor guidance.
A pleasant family day at the beach under a radiant sun! … See you again in July 2020!
