I see that Ottawa is celebrating New Brunswick’s 225 anniversary.
The 31st annual Winterlude festival, which begins Feb. 6, will feature “the world’s largest ice lobster” and other East Coast-inspired highlights as part of a celebration of New Brunswick’s 225th anniversary. The focus of activity on the weekend of Feb. 13 will be the 225th anniversary of the founding of New Brunswick as a British colony. Several venues will celebrate Acadian traditions in song, dance and storytelling. Visitors will also be able to admire the giant ice lobster and snack on a LobsterTail, the New Brunswick spinoff of the ever-popular Winterlude pastry produced by BeaverTails.
Uh. Are we? Celebrating that is?
