Nova Scotia has experienced more than its fair share of tragedy. To remember the first responders, military members and community citizens we have lost this year, Operation Bluenose will happen over three nights.
From July 24 – 26, communities across the province will participate by lighting landmarks in their cities and towns with blue from dusk until 11PM. This coincides with the first sailing weekend of Bluenose II.
Landmarks that will be illuminated blue include:
Lunenburg – Bluenose II, (July 24 only)
Peggy’s Cove – Lighthouse
Truro – Town Hall, library, police station.
New Glasgow – Glasgow Square, fire hall, Carmichael Park (tentative) Town Hall (tentative)

Operation Bluenose wants to be far reaching. All people, business, organizations and communities are invited to participate, however small their contribution of blue might be. Share photos of your contribution using the hashtag #OperationBluenose.
