So you’ve opted to avoid the headaches of travel and decided to enjoy Victoria Day long weekend in Kingston. Good on you, because there are plenty of things to do, right here at home!
Here are just a few of the things you can see and do:
Kingston Family Fun World has opened the go-carts for the season, and have movies on all three screens right now. Find out more and get the schedule here: http://www.funworldpark.com
What better way to kick off the sunny season (even if it’s raining) than getting all stocked up to complete your garden? The Cataraqui Regional Conservation Authority’s Native Plant Sale takes place Saturday, May 19 all day! Go here to find out more: https://www.facebook.com/
Also, the city of Kingston’s splash pads open this weekend! Tell the kids to put on their bathing suits and loads of sunscreen and enjoy the new or improved splash pads found at any of these locations: https://www.cityofkingston.ca/residents/recreation/facilities/aquatic-facilities/wading-pools-splash-pads
Fireworks! On Sunday, May 20th, at around 9:30 p.m. the city of Kingston will be holding a fireworks show at Lake Ontario Park to celebrate the holiday. Make your way to the park way before then, though, as festivities begin at 1 p.m. with activities and fun for the whole family. Enjoy a bubble show with Miss T the Bubble Queen, a K-9 demonstration by Kingston Police, exciting inflatables and much more! In the evening, enjoy the live music lineup down by the water featuring Hotel California who will be recreating the legendary sound of the Eagles.
Lastly, what is a Victoria Day Weekend without a little tip of the hat to the royal family? Grab your fascinator and your finest footwear for the biggest Royal Wedding viewing party in the city! Renaissance Event Venue will celebrate Harry and Meghan in style beginning at 7 am on Saturday, May 19. Details here: http://foodandheritage.com/
