Mi-careme (mid-Lent) is a centuries-old festivity where people would take a break from the rigours of Lent, they would disguise themselves and go from house to house for a little fun and games. The tradition is still alive in the Acadian communities of Chéticamp and St. Joseph du Moine.

Dartmouth Handcrafters Guild
