Banner du Institut Jacques Cartier

Contributed by Franco-American Collection

In Lewiston, huge popular parades for St-Jean-Baptiste day were held from 1875 to 1966. Organizing the event, which involved thousands of people, was a massive undertaking.

For three-quarters of a century, L-A’s oldest Franco group, La Institut Jacques Cartier, was responsible for the large scale annual celebration.

Patriotism and ethnic pride highlighted these public manifestations. Reverse side of banner is shown in item #18419.
