Prince Charles and Camilla to take in concert at Province House, fireworks on Charlottetown Harbour
Prince Edward Islanders and visitors — including royal ones — are invited to a free outdoor concert on Victoria Day Monday.
Their Royal Highnesses Prince Charles and his wife Camilla are arriving in Charlottetown Monday evening as part of the couple's royal tour of Canada. The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will make their way to Province House by about 8:30 p.m., where the free Victoria Day concert will already be in full swing.
Performers for the show are Tim Chaisson, Catherine MacLellan, Patrick Ledwell, Wade Lynch, Paper Lions and The Meds.
“All eyes will be on Prince Edward Island as Their Royal Highnesses arrive in Charlottetown,” said Premier Robert Ghiz in a news release announcing the acts. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for Islanders to come together, enjoy an evening of Island talent and welcome our special guests during this celebratory year.”
Entertainment begins at 6:30 p.m. on the grounds at Province House. There will be face-painting, balloon twisting and other family activities.
As the night draws to a close, a fireworks display will light up the sky over the Charlottetown Harbour at about 9 p.m.
