Kyle’s weekend picks

The Westhills B.C. Day Celebration is happening from 12 to 4 p.m. on Monday at City Centre Park.

It’s the B.C. Day long weekend y’all, which surely must be the busiest camping weekend of the year.

I’m guessing this based on the fact that I, who has issues with planning ahead, can’t seem to find a camping spot anywhere on Vancouver Island now that I’ve left it to the last minute.

Oh well.

There’s plenty to do right here on the West Shore, so why sweat it?

The Westhills B.C. Day Celebration is happening from 12 to 4 p.m. on Monday at City Centre Park.

There will be live music from local acts such as The Archers and Kuba Oms and the Velvet Revolution, along with tasty food, face painting, and, of course, bouncy castles.

Admission is free.

Also going down this weekend is the City of Langford’s Music in the Park series at Veterans Memorial Park.

The Washington Cook Trio will be playing on Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m., so bring a lawn chair and some public-friendly beverages to enjoy some tunes.

And if you’re like me and want to go camping but didn’t have the forethought to reserve, you can try your luck – as I plan to – at Goldstream Provincial Park for one of the first come, first served sites.

Good luck. But know that I will take your spot if I get the chance.

Have a good weekend.
