Fort Victoria Family Festival and Fort Building Competition

On Sunday, July 29, 2012, from noon - 3 p.m. take a step back in time and participate in the Fort Victoria Family Festival and Fort Building Competition. Gather your family, friends, neighbours and co-workers and let your creativity run wild as you build your own fort in Centennial Square.
