Caribbean-On-Line / St. Barts / Events / Local Stuff / Parade in Gustavia for Mi-Carême

Parade in Gustavia for Mi-Carême

Carême is the period from the beginning of Lent (the day after Mardi Gras) to Easter. Consequently, mi-carême marks the middle of this period and is often celebrated with a small Carnaval-like parade. Mi-carêmers will parade through the streets of Gustavia on March 15 dressed in red and black. The custom started during the Middle Ages when the common people in France were permitted a one-day respite from the constraints of Lent to enjoy themselves. They went from house to house disguised from head to toe while their host tried to guess their identity. When the game was over, they removed their masks and were offered treats.
