Naval Centennial Summer Guide Sure Thing

When: June 30-July 3 2010
It's not only the country's big day: Canada's navy is also turning the big 1-0-0, and HRM is hosting an International Fleet Review Week. Approximately 22 foreign ships will be arriving in Halifax, starting June 23, with many ships open for tours, a village with vendor tents on the waterfront and a welcome performance/flyover from the Snowbirds on June 28. It's expected that over 5,000 sailors will be visiting. Watch some of them participate in a "Mini World Cup Game" at Saint Mary's University on June 25. If art is more your thing, help the navy celebrate with commemorative exhibitions of Canadian naval-themed art at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia (until July 18) and Dalhousie Art Gallery (to July 4). –Laura Kenins
