Sanguine on Sagouine

Le Pays de La Sagouine theme park in Bouctouche is celebrating it's 20th anniversary this summer. The Acadian attraction features old-time characters, songs, jokes and stories set in a fictional island village. The park is inspired by Antonine Maillet's 1971 play La Sagouine. Marie-France Doucet is the general manager and she spoke with the CBC's Tori Weldon about the enduring appeal of the attraction.
