Victoria Day

If I didn’t get enough of a fix of the 1920s last night watching The Great Gatsby at the cinema, then I definitely did today.
Today is Victoria Day, a public holiday in Canada celebrating Queen Victoria’s birthday, so today we decided to take the Skytrain to the Burnaby Village Museum. The village is both a themed attraction and a professional museum, and visitors are able to stroll through the village and experience what life was like in the 1920s. Actors wear costumes from the era and give demonstrations in the homes, businesses, and shops that you are allowed to wander freely into and, there is also a working carousel that was built in 1912.
