People from around the world are uniting on the eve of an unforgettable tragedy. Titanic's ill-fated voyage will be commemorated Saturday night in Halifax. Hundreds gathered for a candle-lit procession and walking tour in the downtown core with stops at Titanic-related landmarks.

Many visitors and members of international media have flocked to the city to mark the centennial of the Titanic's sinking. April 14th 2012 marks one hundred years since the "unsinkable ship" hit an iceberg and started taking in water. Halifax's Grand Parade will host "Titanic Eve – Night of the Bells". Live performances will explore the events that led up to the ship's sinking. The evening will also focus on Halifax's relief effort. The city sent out ships to search for survivors. Tragically, only bodies were located upon arriving at the location where the boat went down. Hundreds of bodies were brought back to Halifax to be indentified and were later laid to rest in cemeteries throughout the Halifax Regional Municipality.

A moment of silence will be held at 12:27am on Sunday, the exact time of the last distress call from Titanic.
