For the last 145 year Saanich Fair has been an event not to miss on Southern Vancouver Island. Running over the Labour Day weekend they have many, many interesting displays and events from horse riding, vegetable creations, farm animals and much more. We spent a pleasurable afternoon and evening there taking in the sights and sounds. Highly recommended! - Fern
Situated on the far west coast of Canada, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is the capital city of the Province of British Columbia. Its benign climate (the warmest winters in Canada) and placid lifestyle make it a favorite retirement location as well as a popular tourist destination. About 400,000 people live in Victoria and adjacent communities. Click the photos to see them larger!
