Light curves of 5.6x106 clump-giant stars distributed over 66deg2 of the Bulge were monitored during seven Bulge seasons. 120 events were found with apparent amplifications greater than 1.6 and Einstein radius crossing times in the range 5d<tE<400d. This is the largest existing sample of clump-giant events and the first to include northern Galactic fields. Description: The data were acquired by EROS-2 with the 1m MARLY telescope at La Silla, Chile. The observations reported here concern 66 fields, monitored between July 1996 and October 2002.
