Event description

Description

Freedom of the City is an honour granted to military or paramilitary groups in recognition of their service to a municipality. Since 1998, the 78th Highlanders has exercised this privilege by marching through the streets of Halifax with bayonets fixed, drums beating, and Colours flying.

Take in the special squad inspection inside the Halifax Citadel starting at 11:00 a.m. and then after the noon gun, follow the Highlanders to Grand Parade and onto Government House.

Don’t miss the unique opportunity to celebrate ‘Confederation-era pageantry’ in 2017!
