It was a great evening of entertainment. A good variety of interesting acts. It was good for both young and old alike.

We went to the Tattoo with a Globus tour and we were all impressed with the show. Very professional and stirring The only act I didn't like was the German group whose humour I didn't understand but others found them funny. The Top Secret Drum Corp from Switzerland was the best act.They also had a very good Royal tattoo programme for CAD 15.00. A good price. They also paid tribute to 3 brave Mounties who had lost their lives while on duty, protecting the public, which they served. Tribute was respectful and moving.

For anyone going to Halifax in July a must see is the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo. This show features performers from around the world , Military and Police bands. I would have like to have seen a second time but we had to go home.
