The Motorcycle and Powersport Atlantic Show held March 2 to March 4 at the Halifax Exhibition Centre will feature the latest technology, the coolest new rides, demos, special features and more.

Hospice Halifax will display One Life. Enjoy the Ride, a visitor photo booth complete with a scenic backdrop, two stationary motorcycles, and a fan for windblown effects to encourage visitors to capture the moment of living life fully.

On Friday, March 2, Brass Knucklehead will take the stage from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and King of Donair will host Donair Date from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., offering a $1 donation toward Hospice Halifax for every select donair, pizza, and donair eggroll meal combination purchased on site at its booth.

The Ideal Home Show, which will take place April 6 to April 8 at the Halifax Exhibition Centre showcases expert advice, new products and services to help renovate and build the ideal home.

Hospice Halifax will display a fully furnished model resident suite where visitors can walk in and experience what a room at the residential hospice will be like.

Gordon Neal, the CEO of Hospice Halifax says “We envision that hospice care will be very much embraced by the community. We encourage people to come out to the Bike Show and we welcome everyone to see firsthand our model suite at the Ideal Home Show.”

Net proceeds from Hospice Halifax’s booths at the events will go toward supporting the development of Halifax’s first residential hospice which is anticipated to open on October 1, 2018.
