Believe it or not, the first month of 2022 is coming to a close. 

Although provincial health measures have limited events across the province, we can still find fun things to do with our small bubble. 

This weekend, enjoy some live music, taste the food of the city and check out a Lego exhibit!

Here are 8 things to do in and around Victoria this weekend, January 29th-30th:
