Fête nationale des acadiens

Today was ''La Fête nationale des acadiens'' (National Acadian Day). If you don't know what an Acadian is, read here. Dave and I are very proud of our heritage and we have raised both our children in this tradition.

To celebrate this important event we have a noise parade called ''le tintamarre'' where cars, trucks, motorcycles, etc. hit the road to make noise and wake up the village. Dave and I have been in the parade for the past 5 years but this year another event prevented us from going. But we took five minutes to wave at the noise parade as it was going by our house tonight.

Joyeuse Fête des Acadiens !!!!!
