Canada Day Photo Album: Halifax Celebrates the Country’s 155th Anniversary

Nova Scotians enjoyed a warm and sunny Canada Day Friday to celebrate the country’s 155th anniversary. It was the first time in three years that the city was able to hold a Canada Day celebration as a result of the lifting of the COVID-19 restrictions.

Photojournalist Eric Wynne captured the celebrations in Halifax, including a Mi’kmaw gathering on the Commons and the Nova Scotia International Tattoo parade. We’ve also added a few social media posts.
