ABRAM-VILLAGE – It’s a day of celebration for Island Acadians. 

Acadian Day celebrations are set for the Old Mills Park in Wellington from 12 to 2 p.m. on Aug. 15.

This free event will begin with the singing of “Ave Maris Stella” by Jacinthe Laforest during the raising of the Acadian flag, which will be followed by the official opening ceremonies.

Entertainment will be provided by Michel and Cathy Arsenault and family along with accordionist Roger "Co-op" Arsenault, which will be followed by Jonathan and Louise Arsenault and their musicians.

There will also be activities for children and a barbecue.

Those attending are invited to dress in Acadian colours for the occasion and show their pride in the Acadian culture of the region.

For those interested in continuing the celebration, a bus will travel to Charlottetown for an evening of music with the groups Vishtèn and 1755.
