La Guiannee | Prairie du Rocher

December 31, 2017 @ 12:00 am - 1:00 am

French settlers to Prairie du Rocher brought with them the French New Year’s custom of La Guiannee, where singers traveled door-to-door and received gifts of food for their performances.

The tradition continues this New Year’s Eve in Prairie du Rocher.

The public may arrive at the Creole House by 8:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 31, to see the singers carry on this year’s event. The singers also make a stop at Fort de Chartres.

The La Guiannee Society singers will also visit several homes and businesses in the village.

For more information, call 284-7310 or 284-3531.
