Did You Know: Bulk Barn carries Quality Street at $1.85/100g. A tin is 725g, therefore, the equivalent chocolate would be $13.41. You don't get a tin (I'm sure you have a spare)
but you choose your own chocolates! Plus the Bulk Barn flyer usually has $3 off $10 coupons. Also nothing says you need to buy a full tin's worth.
I'm really optimistic about this idea of the Downtown Halifax: Holiday Lights Market. A weekend artisan market at Historic Properties filling in some vacant storefronts.
And to coincide with the market and spending time downtown on the weekends, there is Free Parking downtown during the holiday season.As always street parking is free after 6 pm and on weekends, plus the Waterfront Development lots between Morris and George are free all day Saturday and Sunday, Metro Park is free Sat 10 am - Monday 7 am.
Scotia Square is also free Sat/Sun but for that one you need to get a voucher from the Holiday Lights Market.
