This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of an international celebration in Maine that will include visitors from Louisiana, France, Canada, and other parts of the world! Hear concerts from Cajun Louisiana and sample food! We have planned the UMA trip around the pinnacle event, the great tintamarre, which is a celebratory parade. Don’t miss this incredible event!
