It is a long weekend here! Whooo hoooooo! Victoria Day. Fireworks tomorrow night! Will try to post pics.

Note-I live in a city of about 80, 000 and we have fireworks several times a year. I have been told this is not normal. I was told that most cities only have them once a year, maximum twice. We celebrate everything here! BC Day, Canada Day, Victoria Day, Labour Day. We also celebrate another festival unique to our city. Christmas time we have a show in the harbour where all the boats go by with Christmas lights. We also have another light up ceremony where it is a huge celebration kicking off the Christmas season. New Years there is a huge bash where you can bring the whole family and another one for adults where a live band comes in. Also Polar Bear swims, canons fired everyday and bonfires all over the city on Halloween. Almost every weekend there is some celebration. Best of all, beside a nominal fee for the New Year family celebration, it is all free! Is that not normal? I have only ever lived here so I don't know.
