Fireworks for Victoria Day Canada 2014
Monday 19th May 2014 marks Victoria Day across Canada. The day was originally celebrated since before Canada was actually formed.
The Union Jack will be flown from all government buildings from sunrise to sunset and the people of Canada see this holiday as the start of Summer and it is one of the most celebrated early bank holidays of the year.
Victoria Day began in celebration of Queen Victoria’s 26th birthday in 1845 and was decreed by law following her death in 1901 to be recognised accordingly.
The celebrations in Canada are wide and varied and many of them include family entertainment at the core. Some of the facilities and entertainment on offer around the provinces are as follows:
• MOUNTAINSIDE FESTIVALS
• CAR RACES
• BEACH EVENTS INCLUDING SPORTS AND RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES
• LIVE MUSIC – RICH AND VARIED AND INCLUDES FOLK, POP, FUNK, ALTERNATIVE AND OF COURSE ROCK
• WATERBORNE SPORTS INCLUDING KAYAKING
• HANDICRAFT VENDORS
• FACE PAINTING
• HELICOPTER RIDES
• FOOD CONCESSIONS
Of course, no celebration would be complete without the pre-requisite fireworks and the Canadians simply LOVE their FIREWORKS.
Most areas will offer a fireworks display of some sort (weather permitting) so everyone has the opportunity to travel a short distance to see them.
