Oct 28 (Friday): Creole Mourning Tour/B&C Seafood & Cajun Restaurant ▪ In death as in life, Creole Catholic families of old Louisiana practiced customs and rituals that were followed for generations by their ancestors. A widow would be in deep mourning for a whole year. Black garments were required at all times. Children and servants were also required to dress the part. ▪ In honor of these important customs and traditions, St. Joseph Plantation in Vacherie is proud to present its Annual “Mourning Tour.” The plantation home is dressed in full “deep mourning”. Black crepe drape and wreath adorn the front doors. Pianos and organ are closed; mirrors covered, white candles and flowers accentuate the black draped coffin which is placed in the main hall as was the old Creole custom of home visitation. Each room of the home is decorated according to these prescribed customs ▪ Incorporated into the regular house tour, St. Joseph Plantation family members and friends explain these old customs and rituals, which are so important in understanding the rich history and culture of Old Creole Louisiana ▪ following our tour we’ll visit B&C Seafood for lunch on our own featuring Cajun/Creole, Po-boys, Plate lunches, & Seafood ▪ $25.00 p.p.
