3 Ways to Celebrate the May Long Weekend

If you find yourself south of the border for Canada’s Victoria Day weekend here are three events to catch

Joshua Tree Music Festival

This annual festival has more to offer than just music—there is a large market with arts and craft vendors, art installations and even a “Kidsville” schedule for kid-friendly entertainment. And, of course, like at any good festival, there are lots of food and drink options. Music lovers will also appreciate the impressive line-up of live music performances by up-and-coming artists.

Mariana’s Trench Concert

This Canadian band (winner of the 2013 Juno Award for Group of the Year) is putting on a free concert in downtown Vegas to celebrate Victoria Day. Head over to The D Las Vegas to see the show on the Fremont Street Experience’s Third Street Stage. The show also marks the beginning of the Fremont Street Experience’s annual Rock of Vegas Summer Concert Series.

Bay to Breakers

This San Francisco tradition is one of the world’s largest and oldest footraces (the first race was held in May 1912!). Every year, approximately 50,000 participants and 100,00 spectators move along the 12-kilometre course that starts near the San Francisco Bay and heads west through the city to finish at the Pacific Coast’s Ocean Beach. Race registration is closed but Bay to Breakers is known as one of the city’s biggest parties and the spirit is infectious.
