Last year, I was fortunate enough to attend Privateer Days in Liverpool, Nova Scotia.
It was amazing! Located on the waterfront at Privateer Park in Liverpool, it offers the best possible combination of wonderful sunshine and excitement and cool refreshing breezes to keep you comfortable while enjoying the family fun!
On June 30th there will be red and white fireworks, to celebrate Canada Day, and a Pre Canada Day Events concert featuring musicians Hal Bruce and Charlie A’Court.
This years, 2011 Privateer Days activities will include traditional favourites such as:
- Grand street parade
- Historic privateer invasion re-enactment and encampment
- Rum Run
- Carnival rides
- Local entertainment
- Music (headlined in the evenings by the Stoggies, Andrew Hunter, Ryan Cook, and the Hupman Brothers, and featuring local bands throughout each day)
- Artisan market
- Food court
- Guided wagon tours
- Acadia First Nations Kepapskitk gathering and cultural display
Many special new events are also planned for this year’s, 2011 Privateer Days Festival!
“For Riches And Honour”, a comedy written by local resident Beth George and set in Liverpool’s privateer past, is to make its world premiere at Astor Theatre, and will be performed by Liverpool’s own Winds Of Change dramatic society. Beth George, won Honourable Mention in the 2011 Atlantic Writing Competition, and “For Riches And Honour” is proudly presented by the Privateer Days Commission.
