Celebrate Mothers Day in Halifax, Nova Scotia
Moms deserve lots of love on Mother’s Day - it's the perfect opportunity to recognize that special person who cured boo boos, framed scribbled drawings, cut the crusts off sandwiches, tolerated sleepovers, said "I told you so" just when you needed it and still raves about how amazing you are. Whether celebrating a mom, grandma, auntie or the mother of your child, here's how to treat her like the queen she is on May 13th in Halifax.
