Through a stroke of good fortune, my visit to Victoria was on Canada Day for which Victoria throws a giant party. There's all day concert in front of the Parliament Building followed by fireworks. The crowd showed huge enthusiasm for being Canadian with almost everyone wearing the national colors of red and white, many had draped themselves in Canadian flags or painted maple leaves on their faces. Canada Day in Victoria is fantastic celebration and I highly recommend visiting for it.
