Tidbits from the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo

The PBS member channel in Buffalo, NY will be lit up with red and white this July 1, thanks to the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo.

PBS member, WNED-TV expressed interest in the Tattoo as a program of interest for its audience for July 1.

As a result, the Tattoo will be seen in Western New York and Southern Ontario on Canada Day. The Tattoo will also be featured in their broadcast magazine.

The partnership will be one that promotes the Nova Scotia Tattoo but also the culture, heritage and music associated with the Atlantic Canadian region.


Another Tattoo first; rehearsals and set up can be closely monitored by fans all over the world!

Beginning on June 14, the floor of the Metro Centre will be broadcast 24/7 at Novascotiawebcams.com. Fans from all over the world will be able to see what goes on before opening day on July 1 in four second increments.

Novascotiawebcams.com has a loyal local following but has also gained a strong international audience among ex-pats, tourists and those who want to visit Nova Scotia.

The Tattoo hopes its participation will help attract tourists to Nova Scotia this July.


Wedding bells will  be ringing at this year’s Tattoo as two former cast members tie the knot on the Tattoo floor!

Former Haligonian and choir member Stacia Findlay will marry her Tattoo sweetheart, former German Band Member Carsten Borkert on July 7th as part of the pre-show presentation.

The two will exchange vows in front of more than 6,000 witnesses, officiated by Tattoo Chaplain Rev. Robert Chapman. The Choir and the participating German Band, Heeresmusikkorps I from Hannover, will provide the music for the ceremony.

While there are many stories of romance at the Tattoo, this ceremony is a first in Tattoo history.
