This year, the main street – Avenue de la Muzelle – will be transformed into a “Magic Avenue” by the Afozic events team. From December 23rd until January 3rd, the street will be closed to vehicles between 18:00 and 19:30. We will see a series of illuminated parades taking place each evening, featuring over 60 actors, dancers and musicians.
On December 23rd, Magic Avenue will feature percussion and dance from Les Crinolines, a glowing giant called Céleste and two parades on stilts with fairies and vermillion as the themes. The roundabout on the main street will host a fire, light and pyrotechnic show from Braze at 18:15 and 19:15. Then, on December 26th, Magic Avenue will see more stilts with La Parade Enchantée, a high-tech juggling show from Astro Diva and Christmas Songs and Retro Jazz from Satin Doll Sisters. There will be more pyrotechnics from Blaze, this time at the Information Point near the resort entrance.
The shows are back on December 30th, with dance troupe Les Élégants, juggling and fiber-optics from Tornade, Les Ombres Blanches on the stilts and a luminous street concert from Les Pix. Le Petit Bal Pour Tous – a ball for kids, parents and grandparents alike – will take over the Place de Venosc from 18:15 to 19:15. On New Year's Day there will be comedy from Baby Charlie in his 4x4 pram, a music and light show by Umbrella, Madame Ballon’s magical parade with her 100 balloons and Mozdrums the lightning drummer. Le Petit Bal Pour Tous will be back in the Place de Venosc. Finally, on January 2nd the Magic Avenue hosts a full six acts for its finale. There will be return appearances from Baby Charlie and Mozdrums, plus gold themed stilts with Les Crazy Or, ‘dreamlike flight’ from La Lumiéole, a lights and bubbles show in pink from Bulles de Bonheur and street cabaret from Cabaret Urbain.
At the same time, the shops and businesses along the street are taking part in a shop window competition. The theme is blue and white, so expect to see some sparkly displays in those colours as you walk around the resort.
