The long weekend is about to commence.

From roller skating to music and beer, here are 5 things to do in and around Victoria today, Friday August 30th.

Pacific FC eSport Bremen Event

Pacific Football Club will be welcoming Werder Bremen eSports FIFA players Michael Bittner (MegaBit98) and Mohammed Harkous (MoAuba) at the team store in downtown Victoria.

  • When: 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Where: 665 Fort Street

GRL PWR at Victoria Fringe 2019

GRL PWR is the 90’s girl group historical feminist lecture musical extravaganza of your dreams!

If you were the proud owner of a chupa chups sticker collection, who owned or longed for a chunky platform heel, who requires no screen prompts when belting No Scrubs or Spice Up Your Life at karaoke, and remembers that Beyonce was in a four member girl group – then this is the show for you!

Not a girl group superfan? This show also contains history and feminist theory for academics and is wildly entertaining for those who don’t particularly care about any of these things.

  • When: 9 p.m. to 9:55 p.m.
  • Where: Metro Studio Theatre, 1411 Quadra Street

Friday Night Roller Skating in Esquimalt

Roller skating is making a comeback in Esquimalt. It’s been decades since public roller skating has graced the floors of the rec centre, and with the nostalgic resurgence of roller skating brought on by Roller Skate Victoria, the demand for a regular skating spot has become great enough for Esquimalt Parks and Recreation to step in and fill the void.

  • When: 7 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
  • Where: Archie Browning Sports Centre, 1151 Esquimalt Road

Summer Beer Garden Concert

Start your weekend off right at our Fridays in the Square Series in Centennial Square with local music, local food trucks and BC craft beer pouring out of Victoria Beer Society’s Beer Truck! Go for the beer, stay for the music and food at this all-ages event. Wise Child will be performing this evening.

  • When: 5 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
  • Where: Centennial Square, 1 Centennial Square
