In the village of Salles-et-Pratviel, the Saint John’s Eve brandon is organized by the village council and the festival committee. The festivities begin with an apéritif offered by the village council that is followed by a meal and music. The brandon is set ablaze at dusk. The brandon is a tradition that enables local residents to meet in a festive atmosphere. The festivities usually take place on the last weekend of June or the first weekend of July (in 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival was postponed to August).
