Halifax Holiday Celebration

The Halifax Christmas Tree Lighting event will look a little different this year! In fact, we’re calling it the Halifax Holiday Celebration, and it will take place at Peace and Friendship Park on Hollis Street (across from the Westin Hotel) on November 25 from 4:30-5:30 p.m.

Entertainment will include PAW Patrol, Dorothy & Wags from the Wiggles show, the Donair Supply band, and singers Rebecca Guilderson and Jupiter Reign. 

After the Halifax Holiday Celebration, you can take in the Saltwire Holiday Parade of Lights, which is happening downtown on the same evening at 6 p.m. The tree will remain at Grand Parade and will be lit at the end of the Saltwire Holiday Parade of Lights. 

The timeline of the evening event details is as follows:

  • 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. - Halifax Holiday Celebration Kickoff Concert at Peace and Friendship Park 

  • 6:00 p.m. - Saltwire Holiday Parade of Lights starts 

  • At the end of the parade – The tree in Grand Parade will be lit with fireworks to follow 

It will be a wonderful evening full of festive spirit!
