Turkey Festival at Licques
The town of Licques (62 Pas de Calais) about 16 miles south of Calais holds its annual Turkey Festival (Fête de la Dinde) in the run up to Christmas (15-17 December 2007). This involves herding the doomed birds through the town with a competition for the best bird. These Turkeys are prized for their moistness and flavour.
There is also a food market (Marche de Terroir) running throughout the weekend which will feature the local liqueur, the Licquoise.
