Winter has its pros and cons, but we all look forward to March because that is when Spring officially arrives! Events are happening all over the city during March Break as the students are on vacation and families are actively looking for fun activities to participate in. This year, we have outlined 5 things to do on March Break in downtown Halifax, happening March 18 – 22, 2019.
1. Share an Italian Dinner with the Whole Family
The newly renovated Ristorante a Mano is the perfect place to gather the family to enjoy a nice dinner out. If your taste is for pizza or maybe some hearty pasta, the Italian menu is filled with handmade dishes that are perfect for sharing. Spending some quality family time on March Break feasting on pizza—it doesn’t get much better than that!
2. Sweeten Your March Break With Local Treats
March Break is all about fun, and Sugah! Confectionary and Ice Cream Emporium knows how to put the cherry on top of an exciting day filled with activities. Whether it’s on your way back from the Discovery Centre or just before you go see the dinosaur exhibit at the Museum of Natural History, stop by Sugah! for a treat. Handmade chocolates, salt water taffy, or hand paddled ice cream are some of the goodies available to make your March Break sweeter.
If you want to turn the celebration factor up a notch, order a custom cake from Piece of Cake Fine Bakery and Cafe. Their cakes are outrageously fun and unique looking—and delicious, too!
3. Shop For a New Spring Outfit
Parents and students alike will enjoy a March Break shopping trip to the remodeled and expanded Alexa Pope, as the store has the latest in trendy brands including Champion, adidas, and more. If a classic look is more your style, you can pop in to MXM Fashion Studio for sleek styles from both local and overseas designers. Either way, you will be ready with a new seasonal outfit when spring officially starts on March 20.
4. You’ve Earned Some Wine After This March Break
After a busy week of keeping the kids happy, you’ve earned some time to enjoy March Break activities yourself. Bishop’s Cellar has recently added some new events, including their popular Blind Tasting on March 22. For $25 a person, you’ll be able to taste wines like Bishop’s Cellar staff does—the labels will be wrapped so you can guess what the grape varietal is being poured in your glass. The wine tasting event includes appetizers from the Bird’s Nest Cafe.
