the traditional Carambar launch canceled this year

The Colosseum cinema, from which candies are traditionally thrown, is currently under construction.

Bad news for foodies. The launch of Carambar, scheduled for this weekend on the occasion of the 12th edition of “Pont en fête” in Marcq-en-Barœul, is canceled. The absence of this tradition is explained by the works at the Colosseum cinema, an establishment from which sweets are usually thrown from the balcony, reports The voice of the North.

In the absence of an alternative – “it is impossible to launch the sweets from the top of the Pont des Arts”, explains to The voice of the Norththe organizer of the neighborhood party – we will have to wait for the end of the works to see the return of this tradition.

Moreover, this change coincides with the relocation of the Lutti factory from the city to Bondues, as part of a job protection plan.

Gospel concert, humorous fanfare, acrobatic show… If the traditional Carambar throwing is canceled this year, the town of Marcq-en-Barœul offers other activities. The program can also be found on the city’s website.
