Although she was actually born May 24, this year Canadians coast to coast will celebrate her anniversary May 21 — Victoria Day weekend.
Drivers and boaters can expect a heavy police presence on roads and waterways, as they aim to keep everyone safe.
On Monday, Tom Davies Square, citizen service centres and libraries, landfills and recycling facilities and city-run gyms and pools will be closed. Transit buses will operate on a Sunday schedule. For more information on municipal services, phone 311 or visit greatersudbury.ca.
While the city is closed, there is still plenty of fun to be had over the three-day weekend.
What we suggest:
Grab a tent, sleeping bag and wood for the campfire. Don't forget a fishing rod.
