Scaring the cat in the barrel

Danish Mardi-Gras at the Spruce View Hall on Saturday, February 20. A dedicated group of locals got together, dressed up, to chase the bad spirits out of Spruce View. The idea behind this exercise is to scare a make-believe cat in the barrel to the point that he heads for the bush after escaping from the barrel, with a tail of mean and malevolent spirits behind him. In fact, the barrel was more like a Mexican "piniata", filled with candies and other goodies.
