Natal Day Parade

In Nova Scotia, the first Monday in August is Natal Day, a day to celebrate the history of Halifax and the Dartmouth area. Natal” means birth in Latin, and it is said that Natal Day, which started in 1985, was originally intended to celebrate the arrival of the railroad line in Halifax, but due to delays in construction, the meaning was changed to something else. It is like Nova Scotia’s birthday, and they celebrate with cake and fireworks. The parade was about 4 km across the bridge from Halifax to Dartmouth. There were no spectators on the bridge, no need to march, and we enjoyed taking pictures while walking.
