The Wine Route in early spring in Beaujolais, France. The village of Oingt, located in the southern part of the appellation.  Pictured here is a Fete de Conscrit.  These celebrations happen annually throughout the Beaujolais region.  All the people born in the same year and by extension to all those whose age ends with the same number.  (2013, 2003, 1993, etc…)  The color of the ribbons worn by the people represent the age (20's, 30's, etc…). Teenagers and children under the age of 16 wear pink (girls) or blue (boys).
