French Festival in Cape Vincent


By Jessica Cain

People in Cape Vincent said "Bonjour" to the area's French heritage this weekend, as they celebrated the 41st annual French Festival.

The community comes together every year to celebrate Cape Vincent's French history.

It's a chance to learn a little bit about the past, while dressing up and having fun.

Thousands came out for the event.

"It's to celebrate their French heritage," says French Festival volunteer Ron Jacobs. " We get a lot of people from across the border, a lot of people from up and down the other side, a lot of people from local communities."

The festival offers crafts, music, and a parade, but it's probably most famous for its delicious pastries.

"They enjoy themselves with the parade and with all of our pastry sales and all the activities that are going on," says George Elmer of the French Festival. "It's a fun event everybody looks forward to every year."
