Dartmouth Crossings is hosting one of 2013's biggest Canada Day celebrations. The events take place in various locations throughout Halifax and Dartmouth. Enjoy a pancake breakfast and then go watch the Royal Nova Scotial international tattoo parade in downtown Halifax from 10:30 to 11:30. The parade begins at Sackville Street and continues to Metro Centre. For families with younger children, the Great Canadian Family Fun-Fest on the Commons will be held from 12 to 4pm. This popular celebration features free cake, face painting and music. The most anticipated Downtown Crossing Canada Day event by far is the free concert taking place at Alderney Landing which features Tim Chaisson, Soho Ghetto and local band The Town Heroes. The Fireworks show will be held at the Halifax Harbour at 10pm but the celebration will continue with live music until midnight.
