Catch the Natal Day fireworks launched from a barge in the Harbour during the concert at Alderney Landing (Ferry Terminal Park Area). This is our suggestion for the best view and experience of the "Fireworks Spectacle". A fan favourite, and a perfect way to finish an adrenaline filled day of events.

*If the fireworks are cancelled on Saturday, August 4th due to weather, they will be rescheduled to Sunday, August 5th. If weather conditions are still not conducive on Sunday, August 6th, the fireworks show will not be fired. Halifax Regional Municipality has the discretion to cancel the fireworks and bank the credit for 2019. See "Cancellation Policy" on the homepage of this website.*
