Patio Day coming early this year

Anticipating a warm spring and Titanic tourists, patios will be ready April 11

Good news for anxious patio aficionados: The annual Patio Day in Halifax has been moved forward by city council to April 11 this year. Though April 21 is usually when businesses with valid permits set up sidewalk patios, bar owners contacted members of the council about the anticipated increase in public traffic in the city for the 100th anniversary of the Titanic disaster. Downtown Halifax councillor Dawn Sloane says that the media will be coming into the city to cover the events, and where the media is, the rest of the world will be too.

If you’re a restaurant owner, be sure to apply for or renew your permit now, as it is processed in a first-come-first-served basis. If you’re an eager patron, check the weather forecasts in the coming days. Soon you'll be enjoying a beverage or meal outside one of your favourite cafes or bars.
