The traditional cart races are back on the Bénichon weekend!

The races take place on Saturday evening and the second round on Sunday afternoon during the traditional Bénichon festival in Charmey.

Saturday the races start at 9pm | Sunday the races start at 3pm with prize giving at 7pm.

To begin with there are the cart races. This part is the most sportive one where the runners have to run a certain number of times and as fast as possible.

Then follows the ball of decorative carts that will be noted by a jury (there are several prizes: humorous, artistic, charm, costume, concord, jury and the public who can vote).

To register, go to the website of the youth of Charmey.
