We knew he was threatened by the health crisis. Since the start of the school year, everyone has been wondering: can the Saint-Nicolas parade in Nancy be canceled ? The answer fell on Wednesday. This great popular event will not take place this year.
“The current sanitary conditions and security constraints make it necessary to adapt the organization of major events and the Saint-Nicolas celebrations are no exception”, explain Mathieu Klein, the mayor of Nancy, and his deputy delegate to major. events, Thomas Sovereign. The traditional parade, “the usual high point of the big festive weekend in early December, cannot take place this year”.
The Saint-Nicolas celebrations, which have become a real tourist product in Nancy for several years, will last over 40 days, from November 20 to January 3. Small villages will be set up in the city, with live shows and artistic works in the public space around a large extended course. The full program will be unveiled in mid-November.
