June 23 @ 5:00 pm

Event Navigation

We will begin our highly anticipated celebration with the unveiling on the Canada 150 mural, “Skywalk” created by artist Deanna Musgrave.

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 we’re 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!

We’ll top it all 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 at 5pm and 8pm.
