Victoria Day Special: Where to go on Victoria Day in Toronto

Have you heard about Victoria Day yet? The long weekend is coming up and here are a few tips on what to do in and around Toronto around this particular time. This year, Victoria Day is on May 18th. Every year the date changes, since Queen Victoria’s birthday should be celebrated on the last Monday before May 25th.

Canada has been celebrating Victoria Day since 1845. Following the Queen’s death in 1901, it became a public holiday. For Canadians, Victoria Day is also an opportunity to celebrate the end of winter and beginning of summer weather. Attractions and parks reopen after a long winter. Below you will find some great ideas on how to enjoy your long weekend this May:

1. Enjoy the Fireworks at Canada’s Wonderland
