On August 2nd, the 31st Halifax Busker Festival will kick off, throwing the city into a throng of fire-breathing, funky looking, street performers. Coming on the tail of Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships, Downtown Halifax will get another boost from throngs of tourists taking in the second international event in as many weeks.
This weekend there will be some company in Halifax Harbour as the Tall Ships are set to arrive. The ships will return to Halifax for the first time since 2009, this year as part of Rendez-Vous 2017. Tall Ships and Halifax has become a tradition since their visit in 2000. Each of their visits acts as a homage to Nova Scotia’s relationship with the ocean and the role the province played in the Golden Age of Ships.
