Location
Halifax Citadel National Historic Site

Join Parks Canada and the 78th Highlanders for their 30th annual Victorian Christmas celebration at the Halifax Citadel on Saturday, November 23rd and Sunday, November 24th.

See how the troops celebrated the season in the barracks and in the field, meet Father Christmas, find out what a 19th century Christmas tree looked like, and let the Schoolmaster entertain you with a seasonal Magic Lantern show. There will be parades with Father Christmas, and plenty of guest performers including choirs, musicians, and dancers, with performances in both the chilly winter air and in the warmth of a casemate. Children will enjoy Victorian games and a visit to the craft room, where they can create a souvenir of their glimpse of a bygone era. 12 noon to 4:00 p.m. both days.
