A Celebration of the French Canadians who settled here in the Maritimes.
This Acadian couple came up from Halifax to put on a show of songs she wrote of her upbringing, and how the Acadians were helped out by the MikMaq, etc. The gentleman played a variety of percussion instruments including a suitcase they fondly called the "So Long".
The children had opportunity to play wooden spoons and other instruments, dress-up in period costumes, and sing along when prompted. There was also face painting.
It ended with free ice cream and a cake decorated with the acadian flag.
Here's 3 of our girls that dressed up, and their friend Daniel M.
