Super stoked for the May 2-4 weekend, but not sure how to spend it yet? Well keep on readin' on because VCFS is here to suggest some events to check out! Whether you're spending your time in Kingston or Toronto this long weekend, Vogue has your guide to celebrating the Queen's birthday with flare.
For you campus cool Kingstonians, kick the weekend off with some cocktails on Jack Astor's rooftop patio! There's no better way to set the tone for the weekend than to sip sangria with your sunnies on. Maybe consider tossing around a frisbee with your friends by the Pier on Saturday in the ~sunny and 20~ forecast that Kingston has coming its way. Be sure to get your rest though, as the real Victoria day celebrations take place on Monday May 23rd at Lake Ontario Park. The all day free and open to the public event will feature food trucks, live music, carnival activities and fireworks, of course! Cha Gheill!
The 6ix is always ready to party, but add a holiday into the mix and Toronto turns up to a whole new level. If you don't have the luxury of spending the long weekend by the lake, why not bring the cottage vibes to the city by checking out Toronto's own festival of beer on Saturday and Sunday. Enjoy a drink and a bite to eat at Sherbourne Common, just south of The Lakeshore. If you're looking for more of a thrill, head to Canada's Wonderland this opening weekend with friends and enjoy the firework show Sunday night. Much like Kingston, the real celebrations take place Monday at Ashbridges Bay (Woodbine Beach) in the Beaches. Spend the day soaking up some rays and playing beach volleyball, then turn to a blanket and a bonfire at night to witness the spectacle in the sky featuring approximately 2000 fireworks!
Whatever you decide to participate in this weekend, VCFS wishes you happy and safe festivities!
