Here‘s what my kids had to say about going to the Tattoo!
“I love it!”
“I loved the flying Grampas”
“Totally looking forward to going this year!”
“I love it so much. I love the funny bits.”
“It’s super funny!”
“You should go because lots of people are practicing for it and expecting lots of people to come, so you should go! Lots of countries are coming to join it.”
The Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo is a week-long event held every year in Nova Scotia. The two-and-a-half hour family show is fast-paced – every scene only lasts about 3-6 minutes, so there is always something new to see and experience.
Looking for a taste of true Nova Scotia? There’s bagpipes, highland dancers and military traditions.
Hoping for something more modern? The Tattoo also features innovative acrobatic acts, modern music, contemporary dancing, trampoline routines and cutting-edge videos.
Here is the ever-expanding list of performers for the 2015 Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo
As it is only an hour from the Valley, the Tattoo makes an easy family adventure!
I have such vivid memories of going as a child that I couldn’t wait to take my kids. They loved it even more than I thought was possible! My boys who never sit still for anything, hung off every moment!
They cannot wait to go back this year!
To make it even more accessible for families, this year there are more matinee performances.
