Around June 6, 2014, many festivities will take place near Le Cormoran campsite: exhibitions, re-enactments of military camps, official ceremonies, concerts, parachuting, sound and light shows, etc.
In the Cotentin’s bay, cities of Sainte-Mère-Eglise and Carentan will welcome these events but also smaller towns like Saint-Martin-de-Varreville, Catz or Picauville.
To read the detailed programme, visit the official website of the tourist office of Sainte-Mère-Eglise which is updated regularly.
An explanatory booklet has been published by the Cotentin Tourist Office to explain to those who wish to dress in the fashion of the 1940s. You will thus experience a real immersion in the Second World War and after-war period. Everything is detailed, the outfit, the makeup, the hairstyle and even explanations for the outfit of the children. So you will be able to take part in the flash mob dance organized in Carentan in period attire. You just have to learn the steps!
