Remembrance Day Services, Holiday Markets, & More (Nov 11 – 13, 2022)

We start this weekend’s round up with a look at Remembrance Day ceremonies around the region.

A quick reminder: most establishments in New Brunswick, including schools, are closed Friday, November 11. (Anglophone East, school’s out next Friday, too, for parent teacher meetings.) 

The Moncton Coliseum will again host the large Remembrance Day service for the Greater Moncton Area, open to the public. The parade will begin inside at 10:40am.

This year is also the 100th anniversary of the cenotaph being unveiled in Moncton’s Victoria Park, which remains a popular destination for families to observe Remembrance Day.

The Sunny Brae Legion is again holding a parade to the Sunny Brae Memorial Park. The parade leaves the Legion on Broadway Street (Moncton) at approximately 10:45am (motorists can expect street closures between 10am & 12:30pm), walking across Massey Avenue and onto Peter Street to the memorial. The parade will return to the Legion at approximately 12pm.

Riverview will observe the day at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church at 10:50am.

Dieppe is holding its ceremony at Ecole Mathieu-Martin. Veterans and other groups will form outside beginning at 10:30am, marching inside the school for the ceremony. There’s also a lovely memorial behind Dieppe’s City Hall honouring soldiers.

Shediac will hold a Remembrance Day Service at Parc Pascal Poirier, starting at 10:30am.

Salisbury Legion will host an outdoor service, followed by fellowship in the hall and a dinner in the evening.

A ceremony will be held at Veterans Park in Memramcook at 11am.

Sackville will have a parade, beginning at the Legion at 10:30am and marching to Memorial Park.

Hillsborough and area ceremonies on November 11 will take place at Caledonia High School, starting at 10:30am.

Resurgo Place has a fantastic display featuring the contributions of Canadian women during the First and Second World Wars. A great learning opportunity alongside the everyday fun of visiting the centre! World War Women is at Resugo Place until January 8, 2023.

The Albert County Museum has some incredible military history displays and Petitcodiac’s War Museum is another wonderful local source for military history.

Have a child interested in a music career? The incredibly talented Andrew Waite is holding a weekend masterclass workshop for students at the Riverview Arts Centre, focusing on performance, songwriting, grants, production, and just about everything else you might want to know about a career in the music industry from the 2022 ECMA Solo Artist of the Year & a team of professionals. The workshop runs Saturday, November 12 & Sunday, November 13; cost is $100 but some bursaries are available through Anglophone East if students require assistance.

He’s also playing a concert Friday night at the Riverview Arts Centre at 7:30pm. He’ll pay tribute to the day with a performance of his song Cash It In, based on the final letter his grandfather, New Brunswicker John Thomas Love, sent home from the front in WWI.

Looking to get wet? Why not check out the swim times at the Pat Crossman Aquatic Centre in Riverview, the Moncton YMCA at Vaughan Harvey, and the Dieppe Aquatic Centre. Both the Moncton & Dieppe pools are great with littles; Dieppe has a sloped entry with a pirate ship, while the Vaughan Harvey YMCA has a separate kiddie pool.
