Looking for things to do in near the end of the week? We have some great options for Thursday, September 17th.

Make sure you stay safe, and keep in mind Environment Canada issued a special air quality statement for Greater Victoria at around 11 p.m. on Thursday, September 10. Those conditions have persisted into Wednesday and could remain for the remainder of the week.

As you head out to activities and events, please follow the restrictions and guidelines that these businesses require to keep their employees and patrons safe during the pandemic.

As always, wash your hands, wear masks, practice physical distancing, and stay home if you feel sick or show symptoms!

Without further ado, here are five things to do today, Thursday September 17th:
