Festivals Galore!

I was at the CATCH Seafood Festival this past weekend and had a wonderful selection of Nova Scotian salmon, fish cakes, crab dip, smoked scallops, shrimp and wine…yes, they were serving Nova Scotian wine at the Seafood Festival!  There was also cooking demonstrations, cooking competitions and live music.  The weather was overcast and rainy on Sunday so it was nice to be inside and indulge.

Being at the festival got my friend Susan and I chatting about all the great festivals and events in & around Halifax throughout the summer (this past weekend was also the Multi-Cultural Festival and a couple of weekends ago was the Greek Festival).

Here are a few more not to be missed:

Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo – July 1 – 8
