Fete du Lac

This year it was the 37th year of the fireworks which is a free event hosted by Montriond community to celebrate the Lake. Lac Montriond is one of 23 sites in the Geoparc Chablis which is part of Unesco. Studies have shown that Lac Montriond was formed in the 1550′s when a huge landslide happened off the side of the Nantaux. It was privately owned until the commune of Montriond bought the site in 1992 and have since invested in the site to make the Lake a beautiful place for everyone to enjoy in both summer and winter. Both ends of the Lake have great restaurants and there is path all the way around the lake, the end nearest Montriond villiage has an area for bathing and a small pool for children to swim in this is covered on the multipass. Other acitivites at the lake include kayaking and horse riding. There is also a beautiful waterfall the Cascade d’Ardent that you can walk to and it is well worth the effort.

On the evening of the 1st saturday of August this spectacular firework display takes place. Many people go to the Lake with picnics and barbecues in the afternoon and enjoy the surroundings before the Fireworks begin at about 21:30 when it is dark. Before Lac Montriond Firworks or the Feux Du Lac begin there is other entertainment like Parapenters, firejugglers, fire eaters, clowns and other street performers. The Fireworks last for around 1 hr and there is a different theme each year. After the fireworks there is a band and a bar so you can stay and enjoy.
