On Saturday, September 29, the Bluenose II, a reconstructed version of Canada’s most famous ship, the Bluenose, will launch in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia!
Beginning at around 7am, the day will feature the official relaunch of the iconic vessel, musical performances, storytelling, and an evening fireworks display on the Lunenburg waterfront. All events are free and spectators are encouraged to show their pride by turning their noses blue to become “bluenosers” for the day! For those outside of Lunenberg, watch a live webcast to catch all the excitement of the launch.
