Victoria Day is coming up this Monday, meaning May's long weekend is just about here! A weekend signifying the start of the camping season, an unofficial beginning of Summer, May's long weekend is beloved by many of us Nova Scotians.


As the Third Wave is upon us, we all know the importance of staying home to slow the spread. So here are some fun ways for your household bubble to make the most of the long weekend - right within your own community!

Camp Out in Your Backyard


All the fun of camping, without all the hassle of dragging five bags of "essentials" into the woods. Set up the tent for a night of s'mores-making and song-singing under the stars.

Tour the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia

Several exhibitions featured at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia can be viewed from home (and for free!) through the gallery's virtual tours. Admire the works in each unique tour and learn about the history and culture behind them.


Find the gallery's tours here.


Enjoy a Nature Walk with the Family

Nova Scotia is a province filled with beautiful foliage and exciting wildlife. Although we may not all have popular destinations like Shubie Park, the Public Gardens, or the Musquodoboit hiking trails within walking distance, pretty blooms, interesting rocks, and cool cloud formations can be found around any corner. You could be surprised what you can find within your own community!

Host a Family Dinner Date

Make dinner at home an event by treating the family to something special. Many of Halifax's favourite local restaurants are still open for take-out and delivery. So enjoy some fine Maritime cuisine together and support our local businesses this weekend!

Whatever you end up doing to celebrate this long weekend, we hope you make the most out of it! Get creative with your bubble and stay safe Halifax.
