Festival also caters to the kids. At Scène des Jeunes, located on Cathedral-Carmel’s campus, you’ll find dancing, arts and crafts, and face painting. Be mindful those activities wrap up late afternoon. Les Jeunes Chanteurs d’Acadie, the French language youth chorale from Canada, will be performing at 1:45 p.m.
You may see some familiar faces; our talent will be volunteering at Scène des Jeunes, helping out with crafts and at Scène Laborde Earles Law Firm Fais Do Do where you can purchase the 2018 Festival International pin. All proceeds go to Festival International, which ensures its longevity.
