This is the Haitian version of Mardi Gras. On the last day of school before Ash Wednesday all the school children celebrate kanaval. It's a great, fun-filled and very noisy day which the children thoroughly enjoy. The following photos will attest to this. As we get closer to Ash Wednesday we see and hear spontaneous parades of folks marching and dancing in the streets to the beat of drums and home-made horns. This is a good time to be here!
