Saturday, June 29th, 2019 – Passport to Parks: Canada Day Celebrations
Saturday, June 29th, 2019 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm is Passport to Parks Day, and we are celebrating the Canada Day Weekend by inviting you to walk through our Confederation Trail – a beautiful paved route that host 2 tonne monuments representing when each Province and Territory joined Confederation.
They have combined this walk with an ART IN THE PARK theme, and LOCAL ARTISTS will be setting up at different sites along the route to celebrate our rich Maritime artisan culture.
Watch them create, ask questions about their work and maybe even go home with a piece that speaks to you!
What better place for artistic inspiration and celebration of our unique landscape, than our very own Rockwood Park!
