The Changing of the Guard at the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada is a military ceremony which has been carried out for centuries.

The changing of the guard at the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site in Halifax, Nova Scotia is a military ceremony which is carried out wherever there is a military base.

... 30,000 of these rifles were sent from Britain in 1867 to North America and were used in the Fenian Raids in 1870 and the Red River Rebellion.

Marching drills, bayonet exercises and music of the pipes and drums add to the authenticity of the re-enactments. The 78th Highland Regiment was stationed at the Halifax Citadel from 1869 to 1871. The Halifax Citadel National Historic Site is open from May 7 to October 31. From November 1 to May 6 the site is open but there are no services or demonstrations.
