GNN's award winning City of the Month
for August is...
Moncrabeau France the world’s capital of lying! Here
early every August they welcome storytellers, boasters and braggers
for the Liar's Festival. The winner of the tallest tale is
crowned. This competition,
with entrants from all over the world spinning their yarns in turn, has
a long history to it.
The ‘Grand Concours International des Menteurs’ takes place at the Academy and a King of Liars is crowned. They are the one who, according to tradition is judged by the jury to be the winner. They are allowed to sit in the ancient throne at Place de la Halle.
