Fireworks All Summer Long! Updates 

Fireworks All Summer Long! Updates Below #Canada150

For #Canada150 we’ll be hosting and supporting numerous fireworks celebrations throughout the summer. July 1 will be a unique one of a kind experience on the Common (Presented By Gold Sponsor Dartmouth Crossing). For #Canada150 we are bringing Canadians together to celebrate in one central location that is accessible and free for all to attend. We have made our fireworks show a PYRO-MUSICAL for the first time ever in event history. This means the show will be choreographed to Canadian Classic and Modern Hits! If you are only interested in fireworks vs the concert we are creating a “Family Zone” in the green space of the Emera Oval. Other amazing views would be at Citadel Hill facing Trollope Street or on Cogswell street. The concert area will be able to experience the entire show as well.

On July 1 we will also be doing FREE shuttles directly to the Common from Dartmouth, Mumford and Lacewood Terminals + Free Ferries all day/night long. Let’s celebrate together on #Canada150. If you can’t attend July 1 we hope you can attend the various other celebrations. We love Halifax Harbour fireworks and have A LOT of those available in 2017 as well.

For those seeking shows in the Water, Bedford Days is doing a show July 1 at 10PM. For Dartmouth Fans of fireworks we are doing two shows before July 1. Our Gold Sponsor Dartmouth Crossing has tripled their budget to offer a major Canada Day kickoff show on June 24th (Live Music, Free Cake and More!). This has always been one of our favourite shows of the year and now it’s even bigger at the Pondside Amphitheatre.
