brass band festival

Every summer the town of Amboise hosts a brass band festival where bands from all over Europe compete.  It's really fun as there are several venues around town where performances are given.  In addition, some of the bands stroll the streets throughout the day entertaining tourists, diners, and shoppers.

This photo was taken in the morning when all of the bands form a parade around the main square (the chapel of the château is behind).
