Dijon - meet Pompon

Dijon's White bear

Pompon – The White Bear of Dijon

For many years, those visiting Dijon have made sure that they go to see the famous "White Bear of Dijon" which has been nick-named Pompon. I am pleased to report that Pompon has just received a thorough cleaning and now looks better than anyone can remember since its arrival in 1937.

If you are planning a visit Dijon, make sure you don't miss saying hello to Pompon! It may even bring you good luck,
