Noon Cannon Firing Downtown Nanaimo

Another time-honored Nanaimo ceremony marks the start of another summer festival and events season in the Harbour City.

While the cannons originally intended to protect Nanaimo were never fired to defend the city, they have become a tradition to welcome visitors with the noon hour firing. The firing will continue daily at noon until Labour Day this year.
