Victory Day in Nice
As you will remember if you know your World War II history, May 8th is what we Americans call "V.E. Day", or Victory in Europe Day, since we were still fighting in the Pacific at that time. In France, however, it is a VERY important day, because it was the day Europe was totally liberated from Nazi rule. The French still celebrate this day with a festival. In the mechanical bull ride photo, notice there is an American flag.
