Queen Victoria’s Birthday

Fort St. James National Historic Site hosted a celebration of Queen Victoria's Birthday on May 21.

Fort St James National Historic Site came to life with many things Victorian on May 23rd.

The site served over 240 breakfasts in the mixed and inclement weather to mostly locals from Fort St. James, Vanderhoof and Prince George on the site’s opening weekend.

Activities included the Best Dressed Victorian Contest, A Test of Royal Wits, historical building tours and a lot more.

The park’s next big special event will be a free admission day on National Aboriginal Day, June 21st which is open to all members of the community to come and celebrate.

Historic site events info can be found at www.parkscanada.gc.ca/fortstjames.
