4 Noon Gun at Halifax Citadel in Halifax, Canada

A crowd-pleasing event at the Halifax Citadel is the Noon Gun. Young men dressed in period uniforms assemble on a curtainwall facing the harbor. They follow protocol for preparing a replica of an 1809 cannon while a gathering crowd of tourists are told about each step. Then the fuse is lit. Some people plug their ears while others ready their cameras. Everyone flinches when the gun roars in a cloud of smoke.
