Bastille Day event planned for Sun­day

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ISLAND WEEKEND -

The Coopéra­tive d’in­té­gra­tion fran­co­phone de l’Î.-P.-É. (CIF) in­vites fran­co­phones and fran­cophiles through­out the province to a French-style fam­ily bar­be­cue to celebrate Bastille Day on July 12, noon to 4 p.m., at the Car­refour de l’Isle-Saint-Jean in Char­lot­te­town.

This fam­ily event is free and all are welcome. A Mé­choui-style meal will be served. Mu­si­cian Mario Ro­bichaud will en­ter­tain the crowd with tunes from his French chan­son reper­toire, and there will be ac­tiv­i­ties for the whole fam­ily. Sev­eral door prizes will be given out.

This will be the third Bastille Day cel­e­bra­tion put on by the CIF, and ev­ery year it has been a true crowd-pleaser.

This fam­ily event not only pro­vides a place for French im­mi­grants to celebrate, it is also the per­fect op­por­tu­nity for the lo­cal com­mu­nity to get to know P.E.I.’s French-speak­ing im­mi­grants.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Dot­tie Daly at 902-370-3275 or co­ordest@cifipe.ca.
