Some fun facts about the May-long weekend for you:

Canada has been celebrating Victoria day since 1845, when Queen Victoria turned 30 years of age. The May-long weekend falls on whichever weekend is closest to the 24th of May in honour of Queen Victoria’s birthday. Interestingly, all of the current Sovereign’s birthdays are all officially celebrated on May 24th as well, regardless of when their actual birthday falls. May long weekend also known as May 2-4 is the official kickoff to summer, where Canadians can confidently count on no longer seeing frost and the fashion trends also switch to lighter-colored summer attire from Victoria Day through until Labour day. With the May-long weekend marking summer being right around the corner, we are getting more and more busy here at the Salt Spring Adventure Company and we would be happy to help you make some fun adventure plans of your own.
