Halifax is bustling with activity this month. We know how to handle cold weather here. This weekend some of our team took their families to see Sue the T Rex at the Museum of Natural Industry. Check out the pics below. Next time you are considering a vacation in the winter, think Halifax. There are so many Halifax attractions to see all year long! 


Sue the T Rex


Sue is the largets, oldest, and most preserved T Rex ever discovered. She arrived in Halifax in early January and is here until May 8, 2011. She will be at the Museum of Natural History and regualr admission prices apply. Make sure to check her out next time you are in town. For hours, admission, and more info, check out the Museum of Natural History's website. 

Team Nova Scotia Pep Rally

Team Nova Scotia also held their pep rally this weekend at Grand Parade Square. The picture above is the team posing for a photo courtesy of Halifax Canada Games. Precision drummers QUID rallied them in along with Cheer Elite who blew spectators away.

Despite the chilly temps, the turn out was great. Way to go Halifax for supporting our local athletes!


Please feel free to share any photos or stories you have of Sue or the Pep Rally. 

 Be Well,
