Victoria Day Weekend in Toronto 2018 May 19-21

It is Saturday morning on this Victoria Day weekend in Toronto. While most are watching the Royal Wedding, I am planning our weekend. Today is a bit rainy and we hadn’t really made plans, so we are just staying close to our home. Sunday and Monday we will be tourists in Toronto making new memories on the unofficial start of summer.

The City of Toronto has a variety of parks, gardens and splash pads around the city. If you want to stay close to home and avoid the crowds then this is the perfect option for you.


The best part of the weekend will be finishing it off with fireworks. As always you can enjoy the fireworks at Ashbridges Bay at 10 pm on Monday and Wonderland at 10 pm on Sunday. Check parks in your neighbourhood

We sometimes sit on our balcony and enjoy the neighbourhoods that are firing them off. We are 17 floors up and get a great view.

Whatever you have planned for the long weekend, have fun and make lots of memories.
