The Tattoo was wonderful, such a great experience for the kids, and the adults all loved it too! 


Everything was fabulous! Students, teachers and parents thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience! We hope to go again next year with our grade 2 classes!

“This is not just a Nova Scotia production even though it’s in Halifax, it’s a Canadian production – there were people in attendance from across this great land and participants from all of Canada due to the nature of our military and RCMP ‘Canadian togetherness’ or Canadians on Display.”
