Hundreds of people filled Navy Hall on New Years Day for the annual levee put on by the Friends of Fort George in partnership with Parks Canada.

Organizers said there were about 600 people in attendance, up from 400 people in 2018. 

Families and neighbours gathered for refreshments, toasts, and fife and drum music, finishing off with a literal bang with the firing of a cannon.
