CELEBRATE THE HOLIDAYS IN DOWNTOWN HALIFAX
Just because things are different this year, doesn't mean the holiday spirit is lacking in Downtown Halifax.
As Mayor Mike Savage says, come downtown, enjoy the lights and decorations, keep your distance, wear your mask, and try to support local if you are able to.
Here's a rundown of holiday happenings around Downtown Halifax:

PEACE & FRIENDSHIP PARK
Wander through Peace and Friendship Park on Hollis and South Street to enjoy the winter-themed lighting, complete with LED lit tree-wraps and snowflakes decorations. The tree-wraps include 9,000 high-efficiency bulbs, consuming less than two amps. The LED holiday tree is back but it’s bigger and more beautiful than ever. Standing at 26 feet tall, it’s a must-see this year. The lights in Peace and Friendship Park will be up until the end of January 2021.
