French Fest 2015 : Akaroa

Picturesque Akaroa  came alive with festivities and fanfare,sporting a very French look with berets, nautical stripes and neckscarves

to celebrate its French Connection that started 175years ago in 1840.

The weather was perfectly perfect and in a very well organised event, 

there was live music,

yummy food, street markets,costumes,

embracing the  french culture and heritage.

The streets decorated with Frenchflags and colours of the French Flag, were abuzz with locals and tourists alike, eager to get a taste of French culture and revel in the  joie de vivre  that was in the air.

 

 I was so interested with a couple of games, versions of which we have in India too… its called Palaankuzhi,

and Kozhikai .

Infact ,I have seen this game played in Pondicherry too.

Our exposure to French culture started with Pondicherry and I have been in love with the simple elegance of the French ever since.

Which reminds me that I should go search the Pondicherry pictures I took when we went there in  Summer 2014 ,India.

It was just the thing we needed to unwind and get enthusiastic about the coming last and final term of school while giving the Spring break a  finition fine.
