Rainnie and Gallant will arrive at 7:30 p.m. It's free to the public and admission is first come, first serve.

Rainnie has been host of CBC News: Compass for the past 13 years. Gallant has been the show's weather specialist for 31 years. They will both be leaving April 28.

Rainnie has accepted a job as the executive director of the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame. Gallant is retiring.

"It will be wonderful to have the chance to say goodbye in a public setting. I can guarantee loads of laughs!"
