The 50th Anniversary party (March, 18th 2011)

( français )

On saturday evening, we’ll blow our 50 candles. Will you “dare” partying with us ? A trip to Vittel is scheduled, with a cocktail in the big lounge of the thermal center and a fancy-dress party with dinner and dancing.

Imagine the scene : we are on Saturday April 30th in Epinal. After a unique screening with musical world creation and diaporamas, a bus takes us to Vittel, for a special evening.
We arrive at the thermal center in the middle of the afternoon. We are free to enjoy the park and the spaces reserved for us for a convivial resting for the rest of the afternoon. Of course, some surprises are planned.
But it’s already time for us to head toward the big lounge of the thermal center for a cocktail offered by the city of Vittel. It’s the perfect opportunity for a toast to the good health of our festival and its participants!
The evening continues with a gala dinner punctuated again with many surprises. While musicians take care of the musical ambiance, the good mood of everybody creates the friendly atmosphere. We talk, we laugh, we drink and dance until the end of the night, in memory of the first 50 years of the festival, and anticipating the 50 years ahead of us. Of course, the bus is here to take us back to Epinal...

And If you may dare?!

But there is more… For the 10th anniversary of our festival at the Haut-Koenigsbourg castle, the members of the “Objectif Images club” from Paris joined us in medevial costumes. We decided to revive the tradition and we propose to all participants of our birthday party to come in fancy dress costumes or in formal evening clothes.

You have two alternatives:

  • Either you have in your wardrobe the adequate costume: You just bring it with you. A break is planned on Saturday afternoon for you to change yourself at your hotel. Otherwise, dressing rooms will be available in the municipal theatre.
  • You are searching for the perfect costume ? Don’t bother ! The shop “Palais de la fête” in Epinal has more than 500 costumes in store. It ranges from the very modern dress to the most refined disguise. A reduced price is granted to the participants of the festival : a 20% deduction on costumes costing between 23 to 31 euros and a forfait price of 7 € on the cleaning cost. You can try on your costume when arriving in Epinal and bring it back on Sunday morning before leaving.

Whatever you chose: a Louis the 14th period costume, a marchioness dress or the James Bond black tie, a Venitian mask, the wig of Marie-Antoinette or just a simple mask, come and have fun with us!
