This weekend is also one of the busiest in Victoria. The harbour fills up with over 120 artisans and crafts people. Musicians and street performers entertain hundreds of people every day along the causeway area. First nation carvers and artists fill the South causeway under the Welcome to Victoria sign.
This is also the same weekend as the Symphony Splash. The Symphony Splash attracts tens of thousands of people for an afternoon of music performed by the Victoria Symphony. A floating stage is created and placed in the harbour for the crowd to enjoy. The grand finale is fireworks in time with the Beethoven 5th.
