The annual Haiti Carnival is a celebration held over several weeks leading up to Mardi Gras. On Fat Tuesday, February 28, the kids of the Have Faith Haiti Mission spent the day at the Moulin Sur Mer beach resort in Montrouis, just an hour northwest of the Mission’s campus in Port-au-Prince. A fun day in the sun was had by all!
The last major celebration day during Haiti’s Carnival, Fat Tuesday across the country included large parades and other festivals, each a mixture of Catholic pre-Lenten festivities with traditions from African, Spanish and native cultures of the Americas and the Caribbean.
