Mardi Gras - A "Masked" Affair

Kids with masks

Children proudly wear their original creations which they made at the crafts table during the Mardi Gras evening. Ottawa’s children and the young at heart attended a Mardi Gras celebration on March 12th at the Latvian Church Hall.

Some got into the spirit by wearing costumes and masks and others were in good spirits. The evening’s highlight was learning dance steps to the cha cha and other dances which were taught by Loreta and her husband Leonid.
