This free event at Alderney Landing on the Dartmouth waterfront will provide the opportunity for thousands of people to experience hands on cultural diverse art forms through fire and water activities.
The Mi’kmaw Native Friendship Centre Artists have created sculptures that will be installed and illuminated on the 13 Pillars around the events plaza educating the public about the 13 Mi’kmaq communities in the province. The evening’s grand statement will be the two barges placed in front of the Alderney Landing Events Plaza with illuminated sculptures representing the six continents from which the rest of us come from. Three fire circles will form the center of the festival grounds with interactive art projects, flaming food, blacksmiths, fire artists and live music on the main stage.
