CHARLOTTETOWN – The Island’s francophone community will mark Bastille Day with a special celebration.

A French-flavoured family barbeque to celebrate the French national holiday on July 13 will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Carrefour de l’Isle-Saint-Jean in Charlottetown.

The day will begin with the raising of the French flag and the singing of the French national anthem, which will be followed by lunch. 

Caroline Bernard and Rémi Arsenault will entertain guests with their repertoire of French songs, and there will be children’s activities as well.

The Coopérative d’intégration francophone de l’Île-du-Prince-Édouard organized the first Bastille Day celebration last year, and it was a great success with more than 80 participants.

“This family activity enables not only immigrants from France to celebrate with us, but it is also the perfect opportunity for the local community to mingle with French-speaking immigrants,” explained Jacinthe Lemire, director of the CIF.

The celebration will be held on the patio and surrounding grounds of the Carrefour de l’Isle-Saint-Jean at 5 Promenade Acadienne in Charlottetown.

If it rains, the activity will take place inside. Several door prizes will be awarded.
