No matter if you celebrate Victoria Day or the beginning of summer, it sounds like this is the perfect three day weekend for some type of festivities across Canada. So, if you need to stock up on anything from Costco for your celebrations, be sure to get there before Monday, when most all of the Costco Canada locations will be CLOSED (exceptions noted below).
For those of us that aren’t Canadian, Victoria Day is a federal holiday in Canada to celebrate Queen Victoria’s birthday, as well as the recognized official birthday of the current reigning Canadian sovereign. It’s also used to mark the beginning of summer in Canada. In Quebec, the same date is celebrated as National Patriots’ Day. It’s celebrated with parades, fireworks, military salutes, and by flying the Royal Union flag on federal government buildings.
