Mix one part military tradition with one part Cirque du Soleil. Garnish with a twist of plaid kilt and what do you have? The fast-paced, two-and-a-half hour Nova Scotia Tattoo. Featuring drums, bands, gymnasts, dancers, acrobats, choirs, music, trampolines and the oh-so-scotian bagpipes, the annual spectacle returns just in time for the Canada Day weekend.
