Celebrating Father's Day in Nova Scotia

Fri, 13 Jun 2014 by Polycorp


As we mark the 104th year of Father’s Day, there are plenty of ways to celebrate and honour the fathers in your life in and around the province.

Do It For Dads Walk Run – Staff at Polycorp have pledged support to one of our Ravenscraig homeowners who is participating in this family-friendly, worthy cause taking place this Father’s Day. This event raises awareness and funds for prostate cancer, the leading cancer affecting one is seven Canadian men. We love our dads and want them to be around for many years to come.

Annual Father’s Day Antique Car Show – Take a road trip to Lake Charlotte for the 14th Annual Antique Car Show on Sunday at the Memory Lane Heritage Village. Along with various types of cars on display, there will be live music and special Father’s Day draws. Dad will absolutely love this and the event is only $5 with children under 12 entering for free.

Masstown Market – Take dad up the Lighthouse stairs for a gorgeous view of the Cobequid Mountains and afterwards build a sand castle on their beach beside the wharf. Next, try the fish & chip boat on the patio and then treat dad to a specialty “Just Us” beverage in their restaurant, where dad will receive a complimentary organic chocolate gift bag.

Sugar Moon Farm – Treat your father to a hearty brunch in a log cabin at a working maple farm in the Cobequid Hills. Enjoy smoked sausage or bacon, maple baked beans, biscuits and maple butter, and all-you-can-eat buttermilk pancakes and maple syrup.

Family Adventure – Ravenscraig is located in the Williams Lake section of Halifax. This lovely community is surrounded by lakes and walking trails that are ideal for swimming, skating, hiking, biking and family outings on Father’s Day. Pick an outdoor activity the whole family can join in on.

Is your goal to spend next Father’s Day in a new home? If so, consider the Polycorp Halifax community of Ravenscraig. With just one home remaining this flagship community is almost sold old. This spacious 3,579 square foot home has 4 bed / 3 bath, 2 car garage. For details give Sandy Rutledge a call at 497-5500 or visit the open house on Father’s Day from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
