Memorial Day/Canada Day in St. John's

Jump to last reply

We'll be spending 3 days In St.John's including July 1 at the start of our two week visit to Newfoundland, and I have a few questions about the commemorations and celebrations that day.

We'd like to attend the Sunrise ceremony on Signal Hill at 6am. How does one get there? I can't imagine that cars would be allowed, and it's really at bit far to climb. Are there shuttle buses to take people there and if so where do they leave from and when?

I assume that the Memorial Day commemoration ceremonies take place at the National War Memorial. What time do they normally take place and should one be there well beforehand (as is certainly the case on Remembrance Day in Ottawa)?

I gather that the party on George Street is bigger and rowdier than ever and officially starts the night before. Any suggestions on how to survive it?

What other events might be worth taking in on July 1?

We're very much looking forward to our return to "the Rock" this summer.
