What’s open and closed in Kingston on Victoria Day

The upcoming weekend may be a long one for most of Kingston, but some places will still be open on Victoria Day.


Victoria Day weekend is coming up this Friday to Monday. Although many governmental services will be closed on Monday, due to a recent Kingston bylaw, Downtown Kingston says to expect most businesses in the downtown area to be open at some time on Monday. It is still advised to call the business you wish to frequent before attending to check their hours.
