The highly anticipated celebration will begin with the unveiling of the Canada 150 mural, “Skywalk” created by artist Deanna Musgrave at 4:15pm in Market Square Skywalk (Pedway) followed by a performance of Skywalker, an original composition written in celebration of the Mural by Andrew Reed Miller.

In celebration of Canada 150, the City of Saint John & Market Square are hosting a FREE family event to kick off the summer! Mayor Don Darling & Council will be pulling the official 5pm work whistle announcing to those near and far that the weekend is here!

Then kicking it into high gear with entertainment, bounce rides, face painting, sno-cones, cotton candy, Pepsi products, a BBQ by Local 18, and a taste of Market Square with samples of Boardwalk eats!

And topped off with Festival Fireworks from the Coast Guard site at dusk – grab the best seats in town on the Market Square Boardwalk and enjoy the show!

Featuring live entertainment with the Mellotones! Boardwalk House Band – Nothing but a Necktie, Andrew Waite And The Firm, and Dave Gunning.
