Drums, brass, pipes, and bugles make up the sound of the modern day tattoo. In the past the sound of the tattoo used to signal the end of the serving of alcohol and for soldiers to return to their camp.
It has been 25 years since the Black Watch Tattoo has performed in Montreal. Their return coincides with the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge fought during World War I. It was a battle in which Canadian soldiers showed their worth and took heavy casualties. The performance, which includes the marching, music and demonstration of military skills, also comes as part of the 375th birthday of the city of Montreal. It all adds up to a family friendly event.
All profits generated through ticket sales will go to support the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services’ RESPECT campaign.
