Fête au Village
The annual festival known as the "Fête au Village" is held the fourth weekend in July and is an example of the strong community spirit that exists in the Town. This well attended event is an opportunity for new visitors to celebrate the French Culture of Legal's pioneers as well as an opportune time for a reunion of family and friends. A very special Thank You goes out to all our volunteers. Without your time Fête Au Village wouldn't be possible!
