The Big Nickel, one of Northern Ontario's most famous landmarks, is turning 50 this July. With the help of Dynamic Earth and Science North it is just one of the great outdoor events that is free to enjoy.  A big community party will be held at Dynamic Earth in celebration of the world’s largest coin turning fifty!  Participants will also have the chance to take part in a Guinness World Records attempt and help with the creation of a large-scale coin mosaic.  Work on the mosaic will take place over 4 days, beginning on Saturday, July 19th and ending on the Big Nickel Birthday July 22, 2014 when a Guinness World Records Adjudicator from New York will verify the record attempt. Join in on the party and help break a world record! There are wonderful summer festivals all throughout Ontario and this one in the Great North is sure to be one of the best.

Official Birthday Kick Off is from 1 – 3 pm and then the music goes all day.
