Enjoy the party.
Happy 230th Birthday, Fredericton! // 4 Facts, 2 Fake Facts
1 | Fake fact. You may be confusing our esteemed mayor with Premier Brian Gallant.
2 | Fact. The William Jack Brydone Observatory, known for creating the first accurate map of NB, sits next to the Old Arts Building on campus. The observatory became a National Historic Site in 1955.
4 | Fact. Around 2008, Fredericton officials hooked up with Gangnam at an “intelligent communities” summit, leading to a “city” partnership (although Gangnam is not its own city). In 2012, Psy forgot to namecheck us in “Gangnam Style.”
5 | Fake fact. The exploding whale is just too ridiculous to happen… in Fredericton. It went
down up in Florence, Oregon.
