(Uptown Victoria)

There’s nothing like a vibrant display of colour to kick off summer in Victoria, and Uptown has created an impressive display that showcases just that.

Uptown has partnered with PARK (Promoting Artists | Redefining Kulture) to create an all-new immersive road mural filled with outdoor summer fun for the whole family. The COVID-friendly installation is free and will be open to the public all summer long. 

You’ll find over 300 feet of summer-themed games and activities as part of the road mural – the largest of its kind in the city – designed and hand-painted by Canadian artist duo, the WKNDRS.

The mural mixes tropical-inspired patterns and colours that mimic the dreamy days of summer, and you can check out 11 photos of the stunning displays below:

The interactive installation also includes games like hopscotch, hurdle jumping, and even a track where participants can race one another to the finish line. 

Benches and chairs painted by the artists will also line the pedestrian boulevard throughout the 300 foot stretch, giving shoppers a chance to rest and re-fuel – and snap some Instagram-worthy selfies!

Speaking of fuel, grab some of your own at the many eateries at Uptown while taking a seat on the patio area, where bistro sets are placed throughout.

Summer On The BLVD officially launched on June 19th at Uptown and will run until the end of the summer.
