This seemed like the best place to put this...
Spring Garden Road merchants are hoping a giant 3-D projection on the side of a downtown Halifax tower will draw shoppers.
The six-storey projection is packed with fun holiday scenes and sounds, said Nancy Tissington, executive director of Spring Garden Area Business Association.
“There are tin soldiers and a cuckoo clock in there,” Tissington said Thursday. “There are angels that come out and blow their horns. It’s very magical.
“There are a lot of people that will be walking along and, all of a sudden, the music starts and they sort of stop and they look up and they really get mesmerized by it.”
The seven-minute projection on the side of the Credit Union Atlantic building runs at the top and the bottom of the hour between 6 and 10 p.m.
Victoria Park and the southeast entrance to the Halifax Public Gardens are good vantage points to take it all in.
“They project it from Your Father’s Moustache,” Tissington said.

This is great - in my view. A good start towards bringing in some sort of Christmas type festival in the downtown beyond the norm. Perhaps Christmas lights in the Public Gardens? Or why not start with Victoria Park and then go to the public gardens and then it becomes one big festival of lights?
It would be cool if they did something like that along the waterfront too. That way the navy ships don't just get into it, it's the whole boardwalk!
