La Mi-Carême - March 29, 2003
The word "Mi-Carême" or, "Mid-Lent" is an old acadian custom which was practiced in every acadian community for generations and became a very important part of their social fabric. Since Lent was a time of sacrifice and sombre moods which became difficult for the normally jovial acadians, they accorded themselves a moment of reprieve at the half-way point in the lenten season.
Check out the Gallery from the evening.
