On December 9, 2014, the Bordeaux Christmas market.

After the Christmas tree, the Christmas market.

But this time, Pierre Hurmic the environmentalist mayor of Bordeaux has absolutely nothing to do with it.

It was the merchants of the Ronde des Quartiers association who announced on Thursday the cancellation of the event organized every year at the alleys of Tourny in December.

The reason for this decision is above all economic.

The 1,000-person tonnage imposed by the Gironde prefecture does not allow exhibitors to ensure sufficient profitability.

Normally, the Bordeaux Christmas market can accommodate up to 5,000 people at the same time.

Every year between 200,000 and 300,000 visitors flock to the alleys of Tourny.
