Culture Fête at the Fortress of Louisbourg. When you walk through Louisbourg’s iconic red gates, you will step back in time…over 250 years ago. You can watch an 18th-century dance or listen to cannons being fired. Chat with servants, blacksmiths, and government officials…all in period costume. Stop by the bakery for a loaf of period-authentic bread, freshly baked in Louisbourg ovens. The artisans and actors at Louisbourg have an incredible standard of excellence. If it weren’t for looking down at your modern clothes, you’d feel that you truly were living in the 1740s. #ExploreCanada #VisitNovaScotia #VisitCapeBreton #ExploreCB #CapeBretonAdventure
