You will be guaranteed an entertaining, fascinating and educational experience, in which our Newfoundland History will come alive to you through short dramatic speeches and re-enactments .Our journey will show how we were once England's oldest overseas Colony and despite many struggles and hardships we have emerged Canada's youngest and exciting province.
