Halifax International Buskers Festival

Aug 17, 2007
Halifax is the capital city of Nova Scotia in Canada. It is situated in the east of the country. It lies on a peninsula and is one of the worlds largest deep water harbours. This hilly city rises from the harbour and the historic central district to the upper ramparts of the Halifax Citadel, a star shaped fortress, offering visitors splendid views of the city and waterfront.

It is steeped in history and lush in culture. It has been rated one of North Americas hippest towns.

During summer, Halifax is accustomed to the well known International Buskers Festival and the International Tattoo Festival.

Vibrant regattas flow across the harbour waters while the hustle and bustle of shops and restaurants carry on into the night. At night, relax in a welcoming pub and listen to lively Celtic songs. Sounds of the Jazz clubs should relax you late into the early hours.

If you feel lucky enough you should try your hand at the world class Sheraton casino.

Visitors can experience the cities heritage at the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site where kilted soldiers drill to the skirl of Bagpipes. Take in the sun on the sandy beaches of Lawrence town or Clam Harbour or visit the picturesque fishing village of Peggys Cove with its famous Lighthouse. Check out the 1917 Halifax Explosion at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. From big ships to small boats, from figureheads to foghorns, you'll learn all about the riches of Nova Scotias maritime heritage.

With over 400 km of impressive coastline, white sand beaches and one of the worlds largest natural harbours. Life here revolves around the sea as you can imagine its a magical place to be. From, city streets to relaxing afternoons by the sea, its all here to be found in the Halifax Regional Municipality.

The Halifax Regional Municipality is an international urban centre with a rural cachet. It bustles and thrives with all the energy and amenities of a capital city but within minutes of the cities core, Halifax offers the small coastal villages, country charm, and wilderness for which Nova Scotia is known.

The region has an unspoilt and untamed feel to it, which combines well with a display of some of the most tranquil and picturesque scenery on the eastern seaboard. A place where people will come back again and again, whatever the time of year summer, autumn, winter or spring.
