Diner en blanc 2014 (Dinner in White) in Kenskoff, Haiti at Ranch le Montcel
Dinner en Blanc has become a global trend begun 25 years ago in Paris. Ten friends created a phenomenon by picking a mystery spot to dine at and set up a flash mob scenario.
This year Dinner en Blanc 2014 was held at Kenskoff at Haiti's Ranch le Montcel. 700 guests attended, dressed all in white, delivered from their hotels to the undisclosed private party spot.
After Haiti gained its independence in 1804, the people who fought were not going to let the nation vulnerable to the Napoleon army and consequently allow the French to reestablish slavery all over again in Haiti. The heroes decided to build several forts all around the country for protections. Two of these forts were Fort Jacques and Fort Alexandre in the Ouest Department in order to protect Port-au-Prince.
Fort Jacques is located in the town of Kenskoff, it was built shortly after independence, between 1804 and 1806. Fort Alexandre was never finished due to the death of Jean Jacques Dessalines in 1806.
