What’s happening around our beautiful city in April? Enjoy our month-at-a-glance listing of ongoing events happening in Halifax, Dartmouth, Bedford, Sackville and beyond!
April is here! Bring on the flowers and showers… the warmer weather and longer days! April is the official first full month of spring and if you are looking to do some spring cleaning or pick up some clothes for the ever growing little sprouts, there are many spring kids consignment sales in April and May. Easter comes hopping along in the middle of the month with lots of Easter activities and egg hunts. We also have some special guests coming to town with the ‘Princess and Superhero Tea Party’ on April 7th and ‘Stars on Ice’ on April 26th.
