After two long years, St. Patrick’s Day is back in Halifax! Covid-19 had forced bars to close and parade-goers to stay home rather than the usual green beer infused festivities.

This year though, all the classic St. Patrick’s Day hot spots have gotten the go-ahead to celebrate the patron Saint of Ireland this March 17th. Irish Haligonians (and those who wish they were Irish) may finally indulge properly in the food, beverage & music of the Irish culture.

Everyone’s ready to get in on the action, so we’ve gathered a list of all the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations happening in Halifax this year.

March Break in my grade school years was awesome. All week my mom would keep us busy with baking days, board games, crafting and whatever else she could come up with. The pinnacle of our March Break was the Halifax Day trip. We’d take a MetroTransit bus then hop on the ferry, explore the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Pier 21 or the Discovery Centre and top the day off with a paper bag of goodies from Freak Lunch Box. The March Breaks of my childhood are now some of my best memories!

Creating memories for your kids to treasure forever is the always the goal, but it’s often tricky to come up with unique, engaging experiences - that don’t break the bank. Here are our best ideas to create fun filled memories this March Break.

1. Stay In The Know

The first step in preparing yourself for winter storms is staying in the know of what’s going on in your region. You can’t prepare for something you don't know is coming!

Monitor Environment Canada and keep up with local media for weather warnings and updates in the winter months and especially when a storm's predicted to hit.

Throughout a storm, monitor power outages across Nova Scotia and check in with…

Fall is in full swing! The mornings are crisper, the leaves are turning, and pumpkins are popping up on doorsteps all around the city. Fall in Nova Scotia also marks the arrival of an often turbulent weather season, making it the perfect time to prepare our homes for impending Fall storms. We’ve gathered our best tips for defending your property against the elements of the season.

Clear The Way

In the event of some turbulent weather, you’ll want to make sure that drains are clear of obstacles.

Water damage can be a killer during the Fall months. Avoid water accumulation on your property by ensuring that your downspouts extend three to six feet, storm drains are clear of leaves and debris, and that the ground around your downspouts is angled to…

As we move into the Fall season, not only are the temperatures and the leaves changing but we are seeing a shift in the real estate market in Halifax. 


The first part of 2021 was a “whirlwind” of activity including properties selling quickly, multiple offers and sale prices over the listed price. And yes, lots of buyers from around the country and beyond. 

In the past month for buyers, we have started to see things improve in terms of fewer competitive offers and less inflation of pricing on offers. Inventory continues to be a challenge in some areas but as long as buyers are patient and have well-defined expectations in terms of what they want or need they will be successful in their search for the perfect home. Working with a…

1. Backpack Drop Zone

The last thing on your child’s mind once getting home after school is organizing the contents of their backpack. It doesn’t take long for papers, leftover snacks, extra clothing and who knows what else to accumulate though.

Create a system to make backpack emptying part of the daily routine to avoid a build up weeks down the line.

Set out bins for your child to sort out everything in their backpack and where each item should be. Label each bin with the…
