Halifax Harbour Bridges (HHB) is proud to give back to the communities it serves.


Natal Day weekend

We are part of the Natal Day tradition in the Halifax region by hosting the MACPASS Miles, a one-mile race across the road deck of the Macdonald Bridge. Bridgewalk has also been a Natal Day weekend tradition for over 30 years. HHB closes the Macdonald Bridge to vehicle traffic from 2pm – 4pm on the Sunday of Natal Day weekend so residents and visitors can stroll the one-mile length of roadway and enjoy some family fun. There is always lots of music and entertainment for the entire family and everything is free!


MR. MACPASS is the mascot for HHB’s electronic tolling system, MACPASS. If you would like Mr. MACPASS to attend your community event please contact Alison MacDonald


Banners on the Macdonald Bridge

This program is a great way for a charitable organization to promote an upcoming event or simply to help raise the profile of the organization. HHB provides the space to book 12 banners (six on either side) on the Dartmouth side of the Macdonald Bridge. HHB puts the banners up and takes them down – the organization is responsible for producing the banners. Besides the cost of producing the banners there is no cost for the program.

To request the banners or floral beds please e-mail
