The Fishermen Festival

La Desirade lives on the fishing industry. Every year, in august, there is the fishermen festival. This celebration commemorates the fishermen lost at sea. During this celebration, the fishermen sailors are dressed up with their French Navy sailor’s uniforms and they implore the protection of the Virgin Mary, their Saint Patron and prays together that the sea is always lenient.
