Historic Halifax is excited to announce a new special event, Halifax Muster Days, focusing on Halifax's military heritage during the 18th and early 19th centuries. Market Square, where troops mustered (mobilized) and where produce and goods were bought and sold, will be the focal point of the event; but activities will occur throughout the site during the two-day event.
Activities will include tours of the historic buildings and military encampments, military drill and maneuvers, presentations on local history, and a Revolutionary era skirmish both days. In addition, the family friendly event will offer "hands-on" activities, craft demonstrations, and period music.
Food will be available on-site for purchase.
