FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Vernon River, PEI – 19 December 2017
Start 2018 off with festive cheer by joining Pauley Tours and their New Year’s Day Levee Tour 2018. Levees are long-time honoured tradition that provides opportunity for citizens to exchange greetings and welcome in the new year.
The levee derived from the French verb “to rise,” has a rich history that dates back to the court of Louis XIV, Sun King of France, who ruled from 1643 to 1715. In Canada the levee became associated with New Year’s Day, and is not connected with the old from of the practice. Instead, it carries on an ancient custom of this country, dating from the days of the fur trade. Today, the levee is a New Year’s Day social event, hosted by many levels of government and other institutions.
