Where Summers is Always a Party

– It’s jazz time in Halifax so you know it’s summer. The first thing that marks summer here in Halifax is the farmers market that opens in spring. You know then that summer is just around the corner!

Summer unfolds with street fairs, buskers, open air films, the Atlantic Film Festival, dozens of street parties, music festivals, open air theater and word on the street where authors read poems and prose from their books. New in 2012 is Emily Forrest Local Tasting Tours, a treat on the feet with delicious morsels to eat at the stops on the way.

In July the Jazz Festival kicks off the long agenda of summer on the street. It is an eclectic event with local and international stars entertaining Haligonians and visitors.

Jazz is on the waterfront just steps away from the cruise terminal. Entrance to the midday events is free!

In Summer the restaurants expand out into the street, and people watching starts. Local wine and seafood is a popular cuisine. Nova Scotia restaurants and chefs in the city are world class and eating out is a gourmet experience to be enjoyed.

Halifax is a university town with many international students who add new energy and vitality to the city.

Young, fit students (men and women) enjoy running rickshaws up and down the steep hills, carting tourist for a bit of pocket money.

 

There are many alternatives for getting around the city. Bikes are available for rent on the water front, the city runs a FREE bus service in the summer and their is a Harbour Hopper, a converted military landing craft that acts as a tour bus and a boat. For something completely different, take the foodies tasting tours with Emily Forest Local Tasting Tours.
