One of the best months on the East Coast is here! Nature’s hues have changed to lovely subdued tones, and the snow usually behaves nicely enough to refrain so that we can take advantage of the final hikes, bike rides, and outdoor activities of the Fall. With the holidays rapidly approaching, there are a ton of family-friendly activities and markets abounding. A full month of parades, holiday celebrations, and fun throughout HRM is in store for us!
Remembrance Day at The Citadel
The 1st Field Artillery Regiment will fire a 21-gun salute at 11:00 am followed the noon gun at The Halifax Citadel National Site to commemorate Remembrance Day.
The Halifax Citadel is accessible to the general public on Remembrance Day, and both the fort and the Army Museum are free to visit. Visitors are also encouraged to view the unique short film “George.” Produced by Breakwater Studios in Nova Scotia. The last Commonwealth soldier to die in battle on November 11, 1918 was George Price, a soldier from Nova Scotia, whose tale is depicted in this movie.
