We celebrate Victoria Day with fireworks and sometimes parades. Victoria, British Colombia held the most notable parade for Victoria Day. I like Victoria Day because it marks the end of the long winter and it shows that summer is just around the corner. Victoria Day is very important to my family because a lot of my family members have birthdays close to Victoria Day so we all get together and celebrate the birthdays and also celebrate Victoria Day.
