Christmas' parade


This winter, Tignes is celebrating Christmas in four stages! After the “Féerie de Noël” on 3 and 4 December 2016, the festivities continue on Sunday 18 December with the illumination of the giant Christmas tree, the Christmas Parade on Thursday 22 December then a visit from Father Christmas with chocolates being handed out on Saturday 24 December. What a magical week it will be!
