The beginnings of Nuit Vénitienne (Venetian Night) can be traced back to 28 July 1928. At the time, the festival was called the "Navalcade". It took place on the water in the city centre and modelled itself after the parades of Venice. This festival, which featured a parade of 15 floats, was also a symbol of Provence. In 1954, an authentic Venetian gondola was featured at the head of the float parade. On board were the Queen of Martigues and her ladies-in-waiting. Today, the fireworks have been replaced by a spectacular pyrotechnic performance over the Étang de Berre provided by a world-renowned expert. The theme for 2011 is peace. Street entertainment will take place throughout the day and during the evening.
