The association 'A right to culture' has worked for many years to relaunch the Carnaval de Paris known as Saint-Fargeau.

It organizes a festive costumed parade through Paris led by Pimprenelle, a magnificent Limousin cow in a beautiful red dress. Pimprenelle is the mascot of the carnival  and leads the ‘promenade de boeuf gras’ in reference to a popular 16th-century  tradition.

This colourful and musical parade starts at Place Gambetta and finishes at the Place de la République.
