Natal Day Members Pick

When: July 30-Aug. 3 2009
Believe it or not, this year will be the 114th edition of the Alexander Keith's Natal Day Festival, inaugurated way back in 1895. On Monday August 3 you can watch the requisite parade downtown from 10am, crossing over to Dartmouth via the MacDonald Bridge, ending at Sullivan Pond. And you can expect fireworks off the MacDonald Bridge on Saturday evening and at Lake Banook on Monday. There'll be concerts at the Dartmouth and Halifax waterfronts, the big Chickenfoot show at Citadel Hill (see for more info) road races, talent shows and free pancake breakfasts. On paper it sounds a lot like Canada Day, except it's over a long weekend. With more beer. –Carsten Knox
