The fireworks celebration typically held on the Halifax Waterfront is not taking place on July 1, 2022. A new vision for the long weekend—a festival called Kana’ta Day 2022—is taking over The Common from 11am-4pm with a cultural village for families to enjoy music, crafts, games, authentic Indigenous cuisine and more. Meanwhile, down at Grand Parade, a concert featuring Halifax’s Juno-winning, world-touring act Neon Dreams is underway from 6pm-10:30pm.
If you want to see some fireworks this July 1, the Neon Dreams concert might be your best bet, as the show is capped off with a fireworks finale. Otherwise, get thee to Bedford’s DeWolfe Park (150 Waterfront Drive) for a 10pm fireworks display that caps off a concert with music from the band Donair Supply. The Bedford showcase is part of a full long weekend slate of celebrations for Bedford Days 2022, which you can peep in full on the HRM Civic Events Website.
