Sea Cadets from HMCS Acadia at Cornwallis Park performed the Sunset Ceremony of the Flags on Sunday as a traditional part of Digby Scallop Days.

The historic ceremony was held at Evangeline Mall and was one of the final events for the 39th annual scallop celebration.

Nearly 200 cadets participated in the ceremony that included a marching band, firing of ceremonial small arms and cannons, and drill displays.

The evening ceremony concluded with the lowering of the Canadian flag.
