Loyalist Day Celebration ~ Saturday 18th May
New Brunswick Branch invites you to attend our annual Loyalist Day
celebration, on Saturday May 18th, commencing at ten o’clock at City
Hall Plaza at the foot of King Street. The ceremony will feature the
3rd Field Regiment, which will be exercising its freedom of the city,
along with dignitaries and Loyalist Association members in period
dress. Cake will be provided following the ceremony at Market Sq. In
the event of bad weather, the ceremony and cake cutting will take place
at the Marco Polo Cruise Terminal.
At noon, the 3rd Field Regiment will perform its annual 21-gun
salute at Pugsley Wharf. In the afternoon, both Loyalist House and the
New Brunswick Museum will be offering free admission. This Saturday is
the 230th anniversary of the arrival of the Loyalists in Saint John,
and we would love to have the community come out to celebrate and
remember the founders of our city.
