Five Things to do on Mother’s Day in Nova Scotia


If you ask us, the title of “Superhero” is synonymous with “Mother.” And at the Halifax Convention Centre, we have a lot of superheroes. We asked our team’s moms to tell us how they plan to celebrate this Mother’s Day. Here’s what they said:

1. Have brunch and paint a picture at the Family Paint Pop-up Event!
Enjoy a relaxing, memorable brunch at The Wedding Venue and Cafe. The combination of delicious food, an interactive family art project, and great company will make this the perfect way to celebrate the moms in your life!

2. Enjoy the 26th Annual Halifax Mother’s Day Brunch.
Between 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Sunday, enjoy a relaxing, memorable brunch at the Cunard Centre. The combination of delicious food, live music, and great company will make this the perfect way to celebrate the moms in your life!  All proceeds support Saint George’s YouthNet and other local projects.

3. Take a walk in Shubie Park!
Across the bridge and around the corner, the fresh air and beautiful scenery at Shubie Park is loved by many. Grab the whole family for a morning or an afternoon stroll –maybe even a post-walk ice cream! Here, fur-mamas can enjoy the off leash trails with their furry, four-legged friends.


4. Spend the weekend at White Point Beach Resort.
Yoga, local wine tastings, live entertainment, and so much more: White Point has three days filled with lots of R&R activities specially planned for moms to sit back and relax. Looking for fun for the whole family? How do s’mores by the bonfire and cannon balls in the pool sound? White Point has a full schedule of fun for the entire gang!


5. Discover the wildlife at Shubenacadie Provincial Wildlife Park!
Located just 40 minutes outside of the city, take a quick trip to Shubenacadie and explore Nova Scotia’s premier wildlife destination.  Pack a lunch and prepare mom’s favourite highway-drive playlist! The park is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and children under five get in free!
