ARE THERE ANY BUSKERS ON THE WATERFRONT THIS YEAR?
No. Due to crowd and travel restrictions, the buskers will only be online.
IS THE FAIR ON THE WATERFRONT?
No. The rides and vendors we usually have during the festival will not be on the waterfront, BUT many of the shops and food spots along the boardwalk are open for business if you feel like a visit over the weekend. Please keep the province’s new mandatory mask policy in mind if you do.
ARE THERE FIREWORKS THIS YEAR?
No. The Natal Day fireworks that usually take place on Saturday night have been postponed to 2021.
