A snapshot of what is happening on the Westshore
Summer graced us with a beautifully sunny and warm day yesterday and officially marked the start of the festival season for Victoria. I couldn’t be more excited for the plethora of events that happen over the Summer including food markets, buskers movies, beer, cider, and my personal fave, music!
