100 years ago, the Halifax Explosion devastated the north end of Halifax, killing 2000 people and wounding 9000 more, while destroying the city’s industrial centre. Parks Canada and the Halifax Citadel will mark the exact moment of the explosion by firing a cannon from the ramparts at exactly 9:05:35 am. The Army Museum Halifax Citadel will also be open from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. For more details, please check the website closer to the event.
