C’est le carnaval…March 19, 2010
This afternoon was warm and sunny for today’s carnaval. A slight breeze drifted in from the south announcing possible rain for the weekend but no one was paying attention. All revelers were riveted on the drum playing trapeze act in the Champs du Mars.
The theme of this year’s carnaval was les Couleurs. A parade of children from the three elementary school’s in town all joyfully dressed in their deguisements marched from their schools to the Mairie.
We stood around for 45 minutes listening to the three bands compete for attention.
After a quick speech from the mayor which no one heard despite the blow horn, (No competing with a couple hundred kids.) the parade made its way to the Champs de Mars for the flying spectacle.
Kid’s, teacher’s and mommy’s, are happily tired this evening after a successful Carnaval.
