This year’s highly anticipated 13th annual Canada Day Countdown event honours June 30th 1867. This year there will be a fireworks display at the stroke of midnight, featuring 101 shots to celebrate the arrival of our sesquicentennial.

Festivities kick off at noon. Join Moosehead Breweries as they celebrate their 150th  Anniversary on the Boardwalk. Moosehead President, Andrew Oland will pull the 5 o’clock work whistle to kick the festivities into high gear with giveaways, a photo booth, and your chance to win ‘Beer For A Year’! Story boards with details of where and how the Moosehead empire began and how it has grown over the last 150 years here in Saint John will be unveiled. These will be displayed on the Boardwalk for the entire summer.

Shinerama will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary of dedication to the fight against cystic fibrosis, with a gourmet BBQ, as well as activities featuring the game Wipe Out and bringing back the time honoured tradition of a Mechanical Bull!
