As many of us know, this weekend is the Victoria Day long weekend – this means we have an extra day to sleep in before getting back to work. For many Torontonians, this is also the first cottage weekend of the year, with the weather warming up it is the perfect time to open up the cottage for the summer and enjoy some fresh air away from the hustle and bustle of the city. For the cottage-goers, it will be a weekend filled with sunshine, beer, BBQ, and…repairs.
For those of us staying in the city, here are a few activities to consider this long weekend:
- Victoria Day Fireworks – a great idea to do with your friends or family – there will be fireworks happening all around the city, at locations like Ashbridges Bay and Canada’s Wonderland
- Rib Fest – if you’re a fan of bbq and meat(sorry vegans) – this is a fun activity for you – happening May 21-22 at Yonge&Dundas Square
- Fort York Victoria Day – celebrate Queen Victoria’s birthday at the birthplace of Toronto! May 23 from 10am-5pm
- Food Trucks – food trucks have been rapidly gaining popularity, especially in the city center. If you have some extra time on your hands and want to try some fun new food this weekend – check out torontofoodtrucks.ca for all the info on which food trucks will be out this weekend and where they will be!

So whether you are going to the cottage this weekend, or staying in the city, RLPS wishes everyone a fun, safe long weekend!
