I didn’t realize until yesterday that this weekend is our famous May 24 weekend here in Canada. I have no idea why we are having our Victoria Day weekend so early. Very odd. I think the long weekend should be the following weekend, but I guess not this year.
Anyway, now that I’m up to date as to which weekend is our long weekend I now realize we have a few party invitations that we have to decide whether to accept or not.
Some old friends of ours are having an outdoor barbecue and party on Saturday night. I’m pretty sure we’ll go to that, but I’m not sure we’ll make it to another friends Sunday brunch if we go to the party on Saturday night!
On both Sunday and Monday evening we’ve been invited to join a few friends to watch the fireworks at two different areas in the city. Monday nights will be the most spectacular as the ones we’ll go to see are the Cities Victoria Day Fireworks at Ashbridges Bay.
Perhaps we’ll do what we did a few years ago to avoid the crowds. We went to the boardwalk on the beach with our folding lounge chairs and sat on the beach rather than going right to Ashbridges Bay park. It was much nicer to do it that way. Of course if it’s cold out it might be better to be in the crowd rather than sitting on a cold windy beach.
Any other Canadians planning on attending Victoria Day celebrations?
