The May long weekend party finally returned to Cumberland.
The Victoria Day celebrations ran through the weekend. Saturday was Market Day on Dunsmuir Avenue as merchants and entertainers filled the street through the day, while on 2nd Street, the kids finally got the chance to break out their best racers for the soap box derby.
The community has held a few COVID-friendly events the last two years, but this year marks the return of the full event.
There was a swing dance at the rec centre Saturday night. On Sunday, there was music at Village Park, an old-time soccer game, doggie fashion show and legends of the maypole on the schedule. Monday included pancake breakfasts at the Legion and Masonic Lodge, the maypole dance and crowning of the May Queen, kids’s races, petting zoo — and, yes, the Victoria Day Parade was back too.
