Fête of the Little Boats or Fête des Petits Bateaux is celebrated by the towns along the Moselle river in France on April 6th. A fête is a celebration or a festival.

To celebrate the coming of Spring, children make little pine wooden boats to set sail on the river. On this special day, they place lit candles on the boats and make a wish for their futures.

If someone finds their boat, it will bring them good luck for the rest of the year. It’s even better if the candle is still lit!
