Musicians and street performers entertain hundreds of people every day along the causeway area. First nation carvers and artists fill the South causeway under the Welcome to Victoria sign.
This is also the same weekend as the Symphony Splash. The Symphony Splash attracts tens of thousands of people for an afternoon of music performed by the Victoria Symphony. A floating stage is created and placed in the harbour for the crowd to enjoy. The grand finale is fireworks in time with the Beethoven 5th.

What a great day it was on Sunday. Lots of sun and lots of talent. 12 entertainers auditioned for 2 locations in the inner harbour and 5 spots at fisherman's wharf. One thing the city of Victoria has is lots of Talent.
Jenny Mack goes big. She has been doing market for years and joined the Ship Point Market this in 2017. Her designs and fabric choice propelled her to become very successful at Ship Point. This winter she took a big step and opened up a store on Lower Johnson Street.
This store adds to the growing number of designers/manufactures on LO JO. Unfortunately we will lose her at the market this year but wish her all the luck in the new venture. Check out her website @ http://www.jenimack.ca/
2018 is shaping up to be a year of opportunity if you own a food cart. We have three openings on the Causeway for full-time food carts. We are looking for unique food items that will add to the diversely in the inner harbour. The locations are leased for the entire year.
