During a Buskers Festival along the waterfront of downtown Halifax in Nova Scotia, people swarm the wharf as the famous Theodore the Tugboat looks on. Every adult that has a child will recognize Theodore the Tugboat from the kids show that is loved by thousands of people from around the world.The show originated from one man who was strolling the waterfront as he watched the tugboats in action and proceeded to make up stories for his son at bedtime about these boats. Eventually, the stories became a popular show with Theodore dressed in his red baseball cap going to work each day with all his tugboat friends. The ratings took off, creating a line of toys, books and eventually a life size creation of Theodore.Theodore the Tugboat now has officially declared the big harbour of Halifax, Nova Scotia as its permanent residence and tours are available that take children to see the big harbour of Halifax. Theodore will also be available for special events, private charters and birthday parties for those who have that extra special place in their heart for this magnificent tugboat.The tours run daily from the middle of June until October and the entire journey aboard Theodore takes about one hour. These tours bring the television show to life as you see the sights and sounds of the harbour and visit all of Theodore's tugboat friends as well as the harbour master.While on a family vacation to Halifax, Nova Scotia, make every child's dream become a reality and visit Theodore the Tugboat.Waterfront in downtown Halifax during the annual Buskers Festival, Halifax, Halifax Metro, Nova Scotia, Canada.
