It’s hard to believe that Remembrance Day is already just a couple days away. And after this important event, the festive season is just around the corner!Â
Like most people, almost every year I say I’m going to get ahead of the game for the holidays, look ahead, shop early and make plans in advance. But… I rarely ever do! Life just gets so busy this time of the year.
To help myself out, and many like me, I thought I’d get the festive calendar ready and take a good look at the upcoming weeks! Here’s a first glance at the HRM holiday season…
November 11 – Remembrance Day Ceremonies at Point Pleasant Park and Grand Parade
November 16 (and December 6) – Shopping Under the Stars on Spring Garden Road
November 16-18 – Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council Craft Show
November 17 – Holiday Parade of LightsÂ (currently looking for volunteers)Â Downtown Halifax
November 20 – Opening Night at Neptune Theatre of Elf: The Musical (runs through to January 6)
November 23-25 – Dalplex Christmas Craft Market
November 24 – HRM Christmas Tree Lighting
November 30-December 1 – Symphony Nova Scotia Maritime Fusion Concert featuring Jimmy Ranking
December 7-15 – Symphony Nova Scotia presents The Nutcracker
Of course, there are always endless client receptions, work parties, family get-togethers and other fun, festive outings over the holiday season. This is just to give you an idea of some of the signature holiday events you should be planning for in HRM. And of course.. your own holiday shopping, volunteering, donating and charity work.
Only 45 days until Christmas!Â
