Every spring Canadians are blessed with the Victoria Day long weekend, more commonly known as May 2-4. It’s the kick off to summer and a weekend each and every one of us looks forward to.
For children it might mean staying up late and making s’mores around a campfire. For dogs it probably means the freedom to jump off the end of the dock and go for a swim. For everyone else – making some delicious food, grabbing an ice-cold beverage and playing a game, reading a book or just watching the water, is bound to get us excited for the season ahead.
Whatever the kick off to summer means to you, we can all agree that this weekend marks the beginning. Often Victoria Day is celebrated with fireworks, and while we remind you it’s unsafe (and against rental contracts) to have fireworks on the cottage rental property, most towns host their own displays (which are always far better and more entertaining).
While the long weekend is a fun and exciting time, we would like to take this opportunity to remind both our guests and neighbours that noise travels a great distance around lakes, so please respect other vacationers and adhere to standard quiet hours as well as maximum occupancy limits. Be sure to read through your Cottage Guides when you arrive at the property, they have lots of information and usually suggestions for activities and local hot spots you’d never have thought of!
We hope you have a fun, safe and relaxing Victoria Day long weekend!
