Changing of the Guard 2014

With a flash of scarlet and a skirl of pipes, history comes to life! The Canadian Army was born in 1884 with the establishment of the Infantry School Corps, Company ‘A’ in Fredericton. Watch as period-dressed guard re-enact a drill ceremony to the beat of a piper and drummer. Maybe you will be selected to ‘inspect’ the guard!

Ceremonies take place at Officers’ Square in July & August:
7 days a week at 11am & 4pm (with a third ceremony on Tuesday & Thursday at 7pm) Sentry duty changes on the hour at City Hall. Local dignitaries inspect most Thursday morning ceremonies.
