Weekend Wrap-up April 28-30

Some all-star events are happening at the Scotiabank Centre this weekend. Spoiler alert, the stars will be: Globetrotters, …on Ice, and Canadian National Anthem singers. Also, Princesses and Superheroes plan to take over the World Trade and Convention Centre, and Dancers will be shimmying all over Halifax Central Library!

The basketball team that has been shooting unbelievable (but true) hoops for almost a century is coming to Scotiabank Centre this Saturday at noon! The Harlem Globetrotters will have you and your family highly amused while watching the ball handling wizardry, basketball artistry, and one-of-a-kind family entertainment these tall men from Harlem are known for. Ticket starts at $16.
Rather your stars on ice? Then head to the Scotiabank Centre for 7:30 on Friday for Stars on Ice! Headlined by Kurt Browning, Elvis Stojko, and Patrick Chan, this frosted performance is sure to wow all ages. Tickets start at $25, $12.50 for kids 12 and under.
Prefer your children be the stars? The Princess Tea and Superhero Party for the Children’s Wish Foundation on Sunday is sure to pull that off. The World Trade and Convention Centre is rolling out the red carpet and having three seatings for the Tea Party (1:00, 2:30, and 3:45) and two for the Superhero Party (1:00 and 3:30). Tickets are $50 for princesses and $40 for superheroes, and include a show, a party, a snack, autographs, interactive entertainment, and free admission to the Family Connect Expo which opens at 12.
Auditions for singing the Canadian National Anthem before the Blue Nose Marathon are taking place at (of all places) the Scotiabank Centre on Sunday at 2. Spectators welcomed and encouraged to come and join in on the fun! Admission is free. Contestants can Register here.
Dance the entire International Dance Day away! For children 3-5, there’s a Creative Movement Class from 10:30-11:00, all ages are welcome to Test Drive a Tutu with Halifax Dance at 11:00, The Youth Dance Ensemble Dancers are performing at 1:00, and a Sharing Dance Day Rehearsal with Halifax Dance gets boogying at 2:00.
