With the month of December almost upon us there are many holiday events being added to the events calendar. We can only feature a selection in the wrap-up so check our events calendar for the full list. 1. Neptune Theatre is showing The Jungle Book this holiday season! A classic tale that the whole family is sure to enjoy. 2. It’s the lighting of the HRM Christmas tree on Saturday! There will also be Santa Claus, Good on Ya Band, Fireworks, and a Live Children’s Show! 3. The Halifax Citadel will be brought to life with holiday cheer, festive activities, and a glowing Christmas tree. Visitors of all ages will delight in games, crafts and a visit with Father Christmas.
