Victoria Events for August 2011 #MUVMonthly

June sees the school year coming to and end.. and will lead us into another great Victoria Summer..

Special Days and Holidays

  • 1- BC Day

For students, province wide, the summer is rapidly becoming half empty not half full. And parents everywhere are silently breathing a little relief.

The BC Day weekend breaks our summer holiday months neatly in half with one of the truly great events of the year as Symphony Splash takes the stage on Sunday. This event has grown from an evening concert with Victoria’s Symphony to an all day celebration of music. The evening will end with the traditional 1812 Overture accompanied by the Netherlands Centennial Carillon, the cannons of HMCS Quadra, and Fireworks.

The Capital Festival runs on Monday with more music on 3 stages around St Ann’s Academy.

And the Music continues all month with the Summer in the Square Lunchtime Concerts  weekdays at Noon in Centennial Square,  “Music in the Park”  Friday, Saturday and Sunday in Beacon Hill Park. If you are more of a movie fan then the Victoria Film Festival’s B-Movie Film Festival and the Mayfair Mall’s Drive-in movies are for you. Short Circuit, Finding Nemo, and Raiders of the Lost Ark are just some od the free shows. Space may be limited and for the Mayfair showings do require you pick up tickets at the Concierge Desk.
