Welcome to another edition of the blog; today we’re going to tell you about one of the largest Halloween events in Canada. The article will give you a general idea of what to expect and how to make the most of your experience.
The first and most important thing you need to know about Fairbuary is that it is an annual event that happens in late September. The event itself is organized by the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) and features something for everyone. You’ll find food, crafts, activities, games, and rides as well as music, comedy, and even circus performers!
The organizers of the event put in a lot of work to make sure everything is planned and the schedules are followed. They also work hard to ensure that everything is executed smoothly. Because of this, it can be a good idea to follow the rules and procedures when planning your visit. This can help avoid any potential conflicts or problems.
What To Expect
You should expect to see a lot of families and groups of friends at the event. Kids will have a blast riding the various carnival rides while the parents enjoy some food and drinks. This year’s event is shaping up to be even bigger and better!
The amount of people and the amount of activity will peak during the day. This is because, throughout the day, people will be arriving and leaving the event. Some events, like the murder mystery tour, will only operate in the morning. This can mean there will be less people around at night. Don’t expect to see as many people around during the day as at night.
Most importantly, the organizers of the event do their best to make sure everyone has a good time. This means that any rides that break down or are too crowded can be shut down. People are also checked for poison ivy and other irritants before they can enter the event. So, while it can be a bit frustrating when this happens, it is all part of making the event safe and fun.
How To Make The Most Of Your Experience
The most important thing you can do this year is to have fun! As previously stated, this is an event that happens every year in the last week of September. The point of the event is to have fun and to be with friends and family. So, to that end, here are some tips on how to make the most of your experience at Fairbuary.
Even though this is an advertised airy event, the lines can start forming very early. This means you’ll want to arrive early and get a good spot. The earlier you arrive, the less stressed out you’ll be by the long wait. Plus, it’ll give you time to walk around and take in the atmosphere.
The organizers of the event do their best to provide food for people. If you want to buy food or other goods at the event, you’ll need to have cash. The vendors will not accept credit cards at the event. So, make sure you have the money before you start the event. Most places will accept gift cards, but these are not accepted everywhere. So, if you’d like to avoid glitches, it’s best to bring cash. You can purchase a food or craft beer pack and enjoy it in the park. Plus, there will be places where you can get a discount if you’re bringing a child with you!
Take Advantage Of The Varying Weather
While it is recommended that you visit the event on a sunny day, this isn’t always the case. Sometimes, the weather can be inclement and damp. If you’re planning on going during one of these days, bring some warm clothes along with you. Some of the rides might not be working due to the weather conditions, so it’s best to be prepared. In these cases, it is either closed or operating at a slow pace. The water park won’t be open either, so you won’t have access to any cool, refreshing waters. This could be a major bummer if you’re counting on having a wet and chilling day.
Bring Spare Clothes
You never know what could happen at an event like this. If you’re on the move and the traffic gets bad, it is possible you won’t make it to the event. In this case, you’ll need something to wear once you get there. If it is cold, it can be very uncomfortable to wear just one piece of clothing. Having a spare set of clothes for these situations is ideal. It would be best to bring layers and change clothes a few times during the day. In case you get wet or cold, it’s better to be more comfortable than fit.
Be Careful When Crossing The Streets
As much as we’d like to believe otherwise, accidents happen. Especially at an event like this. This is why it is extremely important to be careful when crossing the streets. There will be lots of different vehicles, including bikes, driving around. It would be best to be safe rather than sorry.
Know Your Routes
It goes without saying that this is an event that happens in a different place every year. This means you’ll have to find your way around when you get there. If you’ve never been there before or you’re unfamiliar with the location, don’t worry. Just follow the crowds and have some fun. Sometimes, you’ll find your way without problems, especially if you arrive early and find a good spot. Other times, you might have to ask for help from the locals.
The Best Time To Visit The Event
The best time to visit this event is between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. The earlier you visit, the less crowded the park will be. Also, the later it gets, the more humid and potentially damp the air can be. These are not the ideal conditions to be in, especially if you’re planning on being on the rides. Being outside during the day is also not recommended, as the sun can be very harsh and possibly burn or damage your skin. So, unless you have a medical condition that requires you to be outside during the day, it is best to stay indoors until the afternoon. This way, you’ll get to enjoy the event without any worries.
If you’re a local, you’ll know what time of day this event is busiest. So, you might want to visit at a different time that what is best for the most people. This can help you avoid having a crowded event where you can’t move or breathe. Plus, it would be best to avoid going during midday heat when the sun is at its peak. This can make a massive difference and improve your experience significantly!
To help you make the most of your experience at Fairbuary this year, we’ve put together a list of everything that happens during the event. Take a look and make sure you visit everything that interests you!
Museum Of History
In case you didn’t know, the Regional Municipality of Halifax is home to Canada’s oldest public museum. The museum’s collections span over 6,000 years of history and include exhibits on maritime, military, and cultural life. One of the most interesting and unusual museums in the world! You’ll have to get your ticket in advance, so make sure you do this before the date of the event.
International Spy Museum
The world’s first and only museum dedicated to espionage and secret agents is a must-see for fans of James Bond and Mr. Bean. The museum’s exhibits include many rare and unique pieces of spy equipment, documents, vehicles, and letters from famous spies and criminals. Amazing collection of spy paraphernalia dating back to the early 20th century. Highly recommended!
Old North Lunatic Asylum
This one is more of a suggestion than a must-see. However, if you’re interested in old buildings, particularly those that survived the Great Depression intact, you should visit this museum. It is a working museum now, but many of the buildings still function exactly as they did back in the 1930s. It’s a fascinating look at Depression-era mental asylums and how they functioned, both then and now.
Museum Of The Atlantic Canada Voyage
Even those who are not particularly interested in history should visit this museum. It is the largest maritime museum in North America and houses an amazing collection of nautical items. From model ships and maritime paintings to a fully rigged ship and helicopter, this museum has it all. The museum is dedicated to the history of seafaring in Atlantic Canada and the impact it had on the region.
